HOW TO FRAME LIKE A PRO

Whether you’re framing a photo for yourself, family, friends, an exhibition, or you’re selling your artwork, learn how to “Frame Like a Professional”.

Club Member Julie Dodge will share her experiences and lessons learned on framing using both ready-made and custom frames. If you’re overwhelmed with decisions, Julie will help you sort through the framing options and enlighten you on what supplies are needed to “do it yourself”. You will learn how to: select the right frame, size your photos, size and cut a mat and mounting board, mount your print, select the right glass and hanging hardware, and “put it all together”.

If you want your photographic artwork to make an impressive statement on the wall and stand out from the crowd, this is a program you won’t want to miss. Hope to see you!! Tuesday, Feb 5, 7-9pm. First United Methodist Church, downtown Peoria.
