The paintings and drawings have been made and now its time to exhibit your accomplishments.  This workshop presents a variety of quick and inexpensive methods of preparing your work to look their best for exhibition.  Most materials and tools to be presented are available from your local home improvement center.  The workshop will include mounting works on paper, creating strainers for works on panel, finding and purchasing lumber suitable for frame stock, measuring, cutting, and building frame stock, finishing frame stock, and mounting paintings into the completed frame. Students are encouraged to bring finished works to discuss specific framing options.
