Come join us as we delve into the historical process of cyanotype printmaking.  We will use a camera-less process to create blue-colored prints by combining iron salt-coated paper and ultraviolet light. 

Week 1: Intro to Cyanotype Printmaking

We will be making prints by placing objects on a pre-prepared light-sensitive surface.  These objects can be foraged at CAC or brought with you, and stencils, translucent objects like beads, plant specimens, or anything with unusual edging work great for this.  Items that light can pass through, like bubble wrap, glass, or marbles, work well also.  Paper and chemistry will be provided.

Week 2: - Cyanotype Printmaking from Digital Print Negatives

Bring a collection of digital photographs.  Together, we will convert the digital file to a printed cyanotype negative and we will learn how to make a test print and a correctly exposed final print from there.  Similarly to the first session, these final prints can incorporate botanical objects or shapes in addition to your digital negatives to create a unique piece of art.

#1. What does that button do? 

Whether using your cell phone, tablet, computer, film, digital camera, or anything else, together we will explore ways for you to best use them to capture the vibrant world around you.  With individual direction from the instructor and sharing experiences with the group, anyone can improve their ability to take pictures and share them with others, even if they are starting from scratch. (BYOC)


#2.  Where did their head go? 

Expanding on basic photography capture, we will delve into the basic adjustments used to take pictures up to the next level, including exposure, composition, and lighting.  Understanding how these affect the final picture can open up new avenues to your photographic world, even if you have no exposure to these concepts before.  


#3 Now what? 

Finally, once you are exploring the world of photography, you will learn how to process and finalize the pictures you have taken with tools such as apps, simple editing software, and transferring to print…whether using pre-processed film or digital photography.  We will also discuss elements like data storage and organization, so you don’t lose track of your work.  This final step will help you to share the world you are seeing in your viewfinder with the people in your life.
