Gum Bichromate and Camera Obscura workshops at Penumbra on the weekend of March 17th

Penumbra Foundation, located in New York City, will be holding the following workshops on the weekend of March 17th:

On the 17th and 18th, a two-day gum bichromate workshop will provide an introduction to the process, where artists’ watercolors are made light sensitive and used to create images that are as much about mood as subject matter.  Please click here for details.

On the 18th, a one-day workshop will cover the history, theory, and practice of the camera obscura.  Together with instructor Liz Sales, students will transform a studio into a camera and create paper negatives.  Please click here for more information.
