Pro Talk: Why Paper Makes the Difference

Featuring Veronica Cotter, Education Development Manager for Hahnemühle


Often we hold our images captive in myriad ways: cameras, smart phones, tablets, and “the cloud.” Have you ever wondered, “What comes next”? Explore the wonderful world of Hahnemuhle FineArt printing papers and begin to envision your images as prints, enhanced by the papers texture, tone and format.

Veronica Cotter,  Education Development Manager for Hahnemühle USA, will lead a discussion on the importance of printing and the significance of paper choice in the print making process. Please consider bringing printed work for an informal print sharing at the end of the discussion.  It’s a great opportunity to look at work, understand the commitment to print and discuss paper options. Enthusiasm and curiosity are highly recommended. Covered Topics:
