CAMP PHOTO- 2 Day Course: Cyanotype

This two day workshop is an introduction to one of the oldest photographic printing processes known. We will cover the history of the medium, negative making, printing, toning, and photograms. This is a fun, low-stress process with infinite possibilities which will result in those unique blue images artists know and love. All supplies will be provided, simply bring appropriate clothing for a darkroom experience. No darkroom experience necessary. (Since the inventors didn’t have any, why should you!) Let’s make art!


*The tuition includes a lab fee for all course materials and chemicals


Prerequisite: Students must be age 15-18 yrs to enroll. All supplies will be provided for each student.
