Image Transfer Inspires

As a photography major in college, I love any old skool photo process. I miss the darkroom but I have moved on and my trying to love the digital world of photo. But when Art Night Out brings back the polaroid transfer class, I get really excited! It’s a nice little mix of old and new and the results are always thrilling!

Our Image Transfer class was held this past Thursday! This class focuses primarily on polaroid image transfers (yes, even tho Polaroid itself is going out of business, there still is Fuji and maybe others…) with a demo in emulsion lifts (which are fabulously cool to watch and do!)

Maggie, one of our long time teachers, brought her Day Lab machines to use for the process, as well as countless books, samples and knowledge. Our students, Deb, Wendy and Zarra were excited and fascinated by the process. They worked from old photographs, digital prints and even collage and magazine images. Using different types of hot and cold press papers and even fabric, they were able to yield different results!

Image Transfers with the Day Lab machines are great because you can print multiples of the same image. The magic of polaroid, however, ensure no two images will EVER be alike. The quality of the transferred images are quite vintage and bring a whole new life to the original images.

Interested in learning about this process? Check back for our fall schedule or book a private lesson or party with Maggie! This class as a private party for a milestone celebration would be spectacular! Have friends or family bring in special photos and learn this magical process! Contact the studio for more information!

Private Lessons

Private Lessons
One of the special offerings we have at Artascope Studios is private lessons with our teachers. We know that sometimes you can miss out on an Art Night Out Class, ArtEscape Weekend or Artist Series featuring the craft you always wanted to learn about. We are more than happy to set up private lessons for a student to come in and meet with our talented staff. Here are a few shots from Diane Brakeley’s sewing lessons with 2 sisters. One is working on a shirt and the other is making a making a dress. Diane says they are naturals and ambitious for sure! Our hourly fee is $35 for a private session and can be set up with our manager, Suzanne, when you are ready to explore your options. 207-799-5154….don’t be shy, we would love to inspire the artist in you!
