Event Description:

Cyanotype photograms are one-of-a-kind photographs made using the sun as a light source. This early 19th century process produces prints with beautiful cyan-blue and white tones. As a group we will explore nature collecting leaves, grasses and other natural elements from the ground. Participants will learn to coat watercolor paper with the cyanotype chemicals and, once dry, make photograms by placing the collected items on the paper and exposing to sunlight. Elements of composition and design will be discussed while viewing the work of various artists using the process. Each participant will leave with three to five unique prints. This workshop is designed for youth age 12-17.
