Nature and Art Cyanotypes

Wednesday, June 1, 2022 @ 5:00pm
Hickory Grove Recreation Center
Presented by The Light Factory Photo Arts Center

Hickory Grove Rec Center

Dates: April 6, May 4, June 1

Times: 5-7pm

Audience: Teens

This program starts with a nature walk to collect plant specimens. The group will then discuss and describe the materials they have collected. 

The plant specimens will then be used as the subject in Cyanotype images. 

The Cyanotype is one of the earliest forms of photography, which uses only light-sensitive paper (or fabric) and sunlight. Students will receive a fun, hands-on approach to understanding light by creating their own individual sun print—or cyanotype. 

We will use a UV light machine to expose the Cyanotype. Students will walk away with a complete art piece!

Sponsored by Culture Blocks - a community partnership funded by Mecklenburg County.
