In addition to teaching Design and Drawing in the Art Department and being the Gallery Director, I’m also the Program Coordinator for the Applied Arts Program, which sponsors a series of non-credit workshops throughout the year.  The topic of each workshop varies, but often addresses studio topics outside of the Art Department’s curriculum.  In the past, we’ve hosted workshops in papermaking, bookbinding, calligraphy, woodworking, and others.

Workshops are free and open to all members of the Wellesley College community and do not require any previous experience. Registration is required to participate in a workshop. Materials are provided for all workshop participants. To register, email me at clieu@wellesley.edu.

The first workshop of the year will be “Photographing 2-D Artwork” on Sat., Oct. 17, 1:00-4:00pm in the Jewett Arts Center, Rm 463.  This workshop will demonstrate how to shoot and edit digital images of 2-D artwork.  An essential skill for any studio artist, these images are important for graduate school applications as well as ongoing documentation of one’s artwork. Photographer Valerie Wolf will demonstrate lighting and shooting techniques followed by digital touch-up techniques in the Media Lab. If available, please bring your own digital camera and 1-2 pieces of artwork to practice photographing.

Other upcoming workshops include a Papermaking Workshop on Oct. 24, and a Monoprint Workshop on Nov. 7. Get more details on these workshops here.
