Fair Use and Derivative Works

As part of Uncorked Canvas’s mission to promote art and grow the art community, we provide art events that showcase various styles and subject matter targeted to novices and aspiring artists.

One of the methods by which we engage the community is through soliciting feedback via our Facebook page and asking our audience to submit and vote on artwork that they like and appreciate, aka our “Like It To Paint It!” campaigns. These submissions fall under “Fair Use” laws and the Facebook Terms of Service. Once the winning submission is selected, one of our artist/teachers will create a “derived” rendition, that will be used to conduct one or more classes.

These derived works, while similar to the original, are solely intended for painting events, and are typically very simplified with colors significantly changed to conform to the limited palette of paints available at our studio. They are in no way intended to be a reproduction suitable for, or in competition with, the original artists’ work.

Example:

Original

starry-night-original

Derivative

Starry-Night
