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 Parties at Artascope Studios- Hammered Metal Jewelry

Private parties are one of Artascope Studios specialities. We are always open to cater to personal events and create a fun environment for all types of events, from birthday parties to team building corporate parties.

We recently threw a fantastic appreciation party for Stegemann and Shuman Orthodontics’ entire staff. They filled up 0ur largest studios with sounds of hammering metal mixed in with a little laughter. Betina was able to lead our 17 guests through a fantastic demo using copper and silver wire to create new and exciting jewelry pieces. With Suzanne’s assistance and a little of my own, the entire cast of party goers went home with some very fabulous items to show off at work the follow week. What a great way to build bonds and show gratitude for your work family.

We are always open to talk about your upcoming event and we love to help guide you to explore all the class possibilities we have for parties in your future. We can offer parties for kids and adults alike. All we ask if for a time and class preference and 5 plus participants. The possibilities are endless!
