In this weekly class, your student will explore the captivating realm of outdoor cyanotypes, often referred to as "sun prints." They will learn how to plan their compositions as well as integrate mixed media elements such as acrylic paint, watercolor, and colored pencil to take their cyanotypes to the next level. Additionally, our artists will venture into the world of analogue printmaking techniques, immersing themselves in the enchanting world of botanical prints on gelli plate, the mesmerizing art of kitchen lithography, as well as hand carving block prints to create their own stamps. My hope is that your teen leaves this class with new excitement, confidence, and tools to continue experimenting with their artmaking at home!

She is used to cleaning up messes and embraces them as part of the process.
