Canvas-Stretching W/S

- $75

Stretching and preparing a canvas for painting is almost a rite of passage for art students. With an abundance of ready made products, it has become a lost art.
Stretching your own canvas, however, is still an economical alternative, particularly for larger works with non-standard dimensions. Some may also prefer to create a different painting surface than the conventional white gessoed products available.
In this one day workshop, we will be using an alternate method of stretching, working from the corners to the centers of the stretchers, rather than the convention of starting at the centers and working towards the corners. The advantages of this method will be discussed. All materials will be supplied, and you will leave with your own stretched canvas (maximum 36″x36″), ready for surface preparation and painting.
