2-Day Workshop with Art Wolfe & Jay Goodrich
Seattle – October 20-21, 2012
Welcome Reception at Art’s House on October 19th – 6pm to 8pm. Light appetizers.

We have modified this class to offer more of what people want. We are now including a FIELD session in this class. We are packing so much into this class, that Art will actually begin his first lecture at the opening reception in his home on Friday night. This class is available only in Seattle, WA.

Whether hosting PBS series, Travels To The Edge, publishing a book, or conducting a seminar or field workshop, my focus remains the same: “Engage, inspire and reveal a new vision of the world around us”.

HUMAN
CANVAS
PROJECT

HUMAN CANVAS by Art Wolfe

www.humancanvasproject.com

We have just added “Human Canvas” to our list of offerings on the Art Wolfe Website.

The Human Canvas Project is an elevated new work from Art Wolfe. For several years now Art has been working on nude figure studies inspired by his lifelong work with indigenous cultures. This work combines the beauty of nature’s creation of the human form together with an artist’s expression of graphic elements drawn from 30 years of photographing nature and cultures throughout the world.

The collector’s edition book HUMAN CANVAS is the triumphant culmination of this project & it is now available for pre-order. This 13×15 inch monograph is presented in a custom cloth wrapped clamshell. Included with the book is an 11×14 inch collectors edition print signed by Art Wolfe. For all pre-sale purchasers, you can choose two prints. Only one print will accompany the book once it is for public sale.

Limited edition prints are also available on the website.

See the article in Black & White magazine, available on newsstands on July 24th.
