sheet. There are several ways to create images to transfer, and this workshop
will describe and demonstrate these different pathways. Current approaches
range from making transfer images from transparencies or 35 mm slides to
shooting directly onto Polaroid film during a live shoot. Bring slides of your
images to use during the workshop. Classes are limited to 25 students
(pre-registration is required). Cost includes a kit. $50.00 per student/
$40.00 Meadows Museum members
