(FORMERLY “THE BASICS OF FRAMING”)
Thursday October 11th, 7-9pm
Would you like to save money by framing your work attractively, easily and confidently by yourself?
Showing our work as artists and photographers is what we do and all shows require our pieces to be framed and wired appropriately. An attractive frame on a painting or photograph usually enhances the piece and may help sell it, but the need to have pieces framed on a regular basis can end up costing a lot of money.
This 2-hour class will get you started on the path to framing your art yourself without cutting wood or glass. The different framing options used for various types of media and the materials needed to accomplish them will be discussed extensively. There is also a demonstration of how to correctly wire your art so that it will hang safely anywhere – along with a description of how to create a basic framing tool kit.
The framing process is the “Final Step” in the completion of your work and it can be easier and less expensive to accomplish when the frames, materials and tools needed are readily available to you and you know how to use them properly.
This class is given by Hillary Binder-Klein, a self-taught artist who has been creating art her whole life and framing it on her own for about 35 years. She has exhibited her art, framed by her, at art shows and galleries throughout New Jersey since 1983. Hillary is an associate member of the Guild of Creative Art, a member of the Belmar Arts Council, the Art Alliance of Monmouth and the Monmouth County Arts Council. Hillary has taught at the Teen Arts Festivals in Monmouth, Ocean and Middlesex. She has also taught at the Teen Arts Festival in Union for the last 13 years.
