Thank you visiting artist Alex Emmons for a great day workshopping with Tarleton’s Design 1 students. The students were given a crash course in 19th century photographic processes and made their own cyanotype photograms using some chemistry and the Texas sun.

Now accepting deposits for NYC trip

Just a reminder the account is open for the New York trip and we are ready to accept deposits. A couple have already started coming in, and we are looking for a few more by the deadline Monday, Feb. 20th.

We did receive some funding from the ALE office which will significantly reduce the travel fees. The estimate costs for the trip are …330 dollars for flights, 250 total for hotel (if double up), and 30 dollars for the subway.

We right now just need 330 dollars for the initial deposit by Feb 20th. You can pay with any form of currency at the Tarleton cashiers office, just make sure to tell them it is for the “Art/Digital Media NYC trip”.
