Learn how to “Paint with the Sun!”
In this workshop we will use sunshine to make images on paper. We will guide you through the process of making cyanotype photograms, one of the oldest forms of photography that doesn’t use a camera. Participants will learn how to prepare paper with light sensitive chemicals, compose images using a variety of objects and materials including fresh botanicals, and develop the prints in the summer sunshine! Each student will receive 3 pieces of 8×10 paper which may be cut into as may pieces as desired. These prints will not only be inspired by nature, they will also incorporate the forms and shapes that make these objects so beautiful. Once you know this process, it allows for infinite possibilities!
