Information for Painting Students

Students have two options for stretcher frames:


Option One


Build them in the woodshop.  If you took Painting I, you most likely came to the woodshop and made a stretcher frame. The woodshop has material “ready to go” to make stretcher frames up to 48” x 48”. I recommend you book a 30 minute appointment the first time to review the process.  At this time we will also take care of the forms required by all students to work in the woodshop for the 2017-18 school year.  To book an appointment, go to AppointmentQuest Indicate in the comments the size frames you would like to build. If your stretcher is larger than 48” x 48” send me an email or stop by the woodshop and let me know the size so I can get material for you.  At that time, I will let you know when to book the appointment to come in the shop and build them.


Option Two


Purchase pre-made stretcher frames from the woodshop (canvas not included).  If you would like to purchase frames from the woodshop, email Brad Smith and let me know the size(s) you would like.  I will get back to you with an estimate of cost and when they will be done.  You can also stop by the woodshop and fill out a purchase form.  Cost can be billed to your student account or you can pay with check or cash.


If you have any questions about the process, please don't hesitate to ask.
