This class begins in the Sculpture Galleries, looking at the exhibition Double Take: Mel Chin & Elizabeth Turk. We will discuss some main themes of the work, including environmental hazards, endangered species, memorialization, and lost or hidden histories. Then head down to the classrooms and use these inspiring themes to create cyanotype prints—using a 170-year-old photographic printing technique that produces images in a distinctive blue shade. Dried botanicals and images printed on transparencies related to the themes above will be available to use to create prints.
Optional: Bring any botanicals you may want to incorporate into your design.
