Jill England

Frank Hamrick is an associate professor at Louisiana Tech University. His work mixes photography, storytelling, handmade books and found objects. Frank received his BFA from The University of Georgia and his MFA from New Mexico State University.

This one-day workshop will offer a unique opportunity to learn about the historical tintype photographic process as well as create a one-of-a-kind portrait. We will have a backdrop with lighting set up and each participant will be able to create a 4"x5" tintype image of themselves. 

Participants should bring an apron to protect clothing during the dark room segment of the workshop. 

Jane Marshall and Her Woodblocks

Jane Marshall earned her MFA from the University of Wisconsin. She has taught at the university level and various workshops and artist residencies and it is her own art investigations that are most rewarding and continue to challenge, stimulate, and drive her. Her training is in printmaking but she explores drawing, prints, painting, ceramics and low-relief carved painting. Her prints have ranged from etchings to woodcuts, the more recent work has focused on woodblock prints and from this she has expanded to carved low relief painted panels. These "paintings" are narrative from autobiographical recollections to images drawn from her immediate environment to a series focusing on animals and nature.
