ArtMatters programming is for individuals wishing to advance their artistic skills, learn new studio methods, participate in discussions and critiques, or to connect with other Creatives. Whether you are an established artist with years of experience or a novice in a new medium, there is always something new to learn.
About This Registration
The cyanotype process is a simple, inexpensive, and endlessly versatile
process that can be used on a number of surfaces, including paper and
fabric as well as glass and wood. The initial natural color is a
beautiful deep blue; but through toning, the color can range to grays,
browns and black. It can be used in combination with a wide range of
other media, making it a useful tool for photographers, printmakers,
painters, fabric artists, and even ceramicists and sculptors. Yet it is
simple enough that non-artists - even older children - can use it to
make simple images. In this workshop for beginners, participants will
learn the simple mixing of the chemical emulsion, explore various ways
of making both photographic and non-photographic negatives, and enjoy
the process of exposing and developing their own images.
