Questions & Answers
What is art scanning?
Art scanning is the process of creating a digital copy of physical art. The digital copy is stored as a large (30 – 50mb) file and a web resolution file making it easy for artists to display and archive their work without it degrading.
How big of a piece can I bring in during ’30 Days For Art™’?
The $5 grant donation gets allows you to bring in art up to 24″ x 36″!
How many pieces of art can I bring in to have scanned for this event?
Up to 3 pieces of art per artist may be scanned.
Does my art need to be flat?
No, because Roots Family History™ does not ‘feed’ your art though any sort of large format document scanner, we are able to scan all art, including 3-dimensional pieces.
How do I get my files?
You can either:
- Bring in your own thumb drive from home
- Purchase a thumb drive at our store ($12.99)
- Purchase a disc at our store ($6)
NOTE: Unless otherwise requested, your art will be stored offline in our secure Heritage Archive™. We keep this archive so that you have a backup (other than your own) of your files should you need to receive another copy or make a quick print with us.
Do I have to register in order to participate?
Yes, we are only allowing up to 250 artists into the event as our capacity is limited. Registration will help us keep tabs on who is coming and when.
How do I donate the 5 bucks?
Donations will be accepted at the door and must be made with cash. We don’t want to give a portion of each donation to the credit card companies. Let’s maximize the amount of cash we can give to the art instructor!
Where is the art scanning performed?
At our shop at 1901 Wildwood Street, Boise ID, 83713.
When are acceptable times to drop off art?
Any business day during the month of May within our normal store hours: Mon-Fri 9am – 5pm.
Can you shamelessly plug a local art supply shop?
Sure, we love Quality Art, Inc
