Lumen Prints with Phyllis Schwartz: A Visual Arts Workshop in Celebration of BC Arts and Culture Week
Saturday, April 27, 2013 from 2pm to 4pm
At the ArtStarts Gallery (808 Richards St at Robson)

Recommended for ages 5 and up

Create photos without a camera! Join artist Phyllis Schwartz to discover the beauty of lumen prints, a style of analog photography that can be used to document as well as create artistic renderings of botanical specimens. Workshop participants will have an opportunity to process a small print and watch how the print changes in fixer and during the drying process.

This workshop is presented as part of BC Arts and Culture Week, a BC-wide celebration of all things art and culture that turns the spotlight on the vital contribution that they make in learning and in life.

While you're here, you can also check out the brand new exhibition in the ArtStarts Gallery, Botanimalogy: Expressions of Nature!

See you soon!
