Last Week In Review: Studio Happenings

Last week was quite the busy week at the studio!

Wednesday’s Panel Production Lab was a success. Marty cut and built several panels, large and small.

The next Panel Production Lab will remain To Be Announced, due to upcoming scheduling conflicts.

Earlier last week, I began a project to convert blank wall space into utilitarian wall-mounted workspace by installing pegboard.

After a few trials and tribulations, the project came to a successful conclusion!

So far, I like the vast amount of work space that this offers versus that of an easel. Time will tell whether the hooks offer a satisfactory support hold on things, especially for unmounted panels.

Well, that about sums it up. See you next time!

Panel Production Lab

Cost: $40.00 per person, per session. Includes all necessary materials. 

Session 1: Wednesday August 24th Session 2: Wednesday September 7th

Location: Liz Ann Lange Art, (inside Landmark Suites) 604 Erie Ave., Lower Level Sheboygan WI 53081.

Details:
Using MDF, pine boards, and tools and equipment on site, you will have the opportunity to draft, cut, and construct your own cradled panels to be used as a surface for painting. (You will still need to prime them before using as a painting surface.)

Each attendee will be provided up to 2 sheets of MDF measuring 2×4 feet. 

You may determine your own sizes you wish your panels to be.

You will draft cut lines, operate power hand saws to cut the panels to size, check measurements, miter the cradle boards using a tabletop circular saw, and glue and clamp your panels. If your work cannot be finished within the given time of the lab, we will set up a time and day for you to return and finish the work at your leisure for no extra charge.

Various saws and some safety gear such as safety glasses, dust masks, and foam ear plugs will be provided. No loose clothing, scarves, jewelry or open toed shoes please. Long hair should be worn tied back neatly. 

Please remember : Your safety is your primary responsibility. 

*Always be extremely cautious when operating power tools. I will not be accountable for any personal injuries in the studio. Injuries are a result of blatant disregard for common sense safety practices. You will be expected to sign a statement regarding this in order to participate.*

Space is extremely limited so that everyone will have quality time with the tools and equipment.
