Edit, Mix, Master: Music Production 101 @ AS220 Industries
Oct 20 @ 2:00 pm – 5:00 pm
Create an mp3 with you own song made from scratch!
  • Sundays October 20 + 27, 2-5pm
  • Sundays December 8 + 15, 2-5pm

Music Production, offered in the Media Lab at AS220 Industries, is where participants can create their own original songs, regardless of experience with music-making. In this class, songs will emerge through the process of learning the elements of music, song arrangement, editing, and mastering through the Mac software Logic Pro X.

This workshop is split into two sessions. The first will focus on the production software and will explore genre, basic music theory, and arrangement. The second session is focused on editing, mixing, and mastering. This workshop will feel like an open paint night, with a common prompt for everyone, to accommodate both experienced musicians with specific goals as well as those interested in simply learning something new. Participants can expect to walk away from this class with an mp3 of their own original music!

Cyanotype Printmaking @ AS220 Industries
Oct 26 @ 11:00 am – 2:00 pm
Learn how to produce deep blue cyanotype images.
Processed with VSCO with 6 preset

  • Saturday October 26th, 11 AM-2 PM
Cyanotype, a photographic printing process that results in a cyan-blue print, is the perfect place to start an education in alternative (non-silver) photographic processes.  Not only is this alternative process low in cost and simple to master, but it creates beautiful and distinctive results.  This class will be of interest to both photographers looking to broaden their printing options, and print based artists looking to add a photographic element to their work.

The class will begin with a discussion on sourcing, mixing and storing of the chemistry used in preparing the photographic emulsion.  Then basic digital negative preparation and enlargement will be covered, along with available options for printing.  This course will use a UV light source in the printshop, but printing with sunlight will also be discussed.

Once prints have been made, the techniques of bleaching and toning will be demonstrated.  Finishing techniques will be discussed, touching upon the archival qualities of the prints, to conclude the class.
