Cabinet Card Workshop with John Carlson

  • Cleveland Print Room (map)

Bringing old pictures to life is what this workshop is about. We will begin with a cabinet card, which were popular photographic portraits from 1870 to 1890. Cabinet cards are albumen photographs mounted to a board. We will explore the possibilities of transforming these images using paint, markers, collage and your imagination. The possibilities are endless!

$25 for an individual, $40 for an adult and child pair. Fee includes supplies. Bring your own images or paper items for a personal twist!
