In this hands-on photography class, students will experiment with one of the oldest, and simplest photographic processes, the Cyanotypes. As the origin of the word Photography from the Greek roots – phōtos = Light, graphé = drawing, we will be using chemicals, water, found plant material and light, to make a cyanotype print, also called Sun Print.
