4 Week | Collage: Cyanotype

*Students will purchase their own materials and should expect to spend $30-70.


Class Description:

This 4-week class will meet at the intersection of alternative process photography and paper collage. Students will learn the basics of exposing their own cyanotypes on paper and then will use that material as the basis for a unique paper collage. The cyanotype exposures will range from simple textured photograms of plant material, to the use of a negatives. Touching on paper weaving, repeated motifs, surface design, and elements of composition, these collages would project through layers of time aesthetically and thematically. This class will activate the Museum’s rich photography collection with focus on alternative photo processes.


What to Expect:

In this class, we will be either outside exposing cyanotypes, or in the studio integrating these exposures into collage. This class will be more focused on techniques through small experiments, but there will be opportunities to work towards a larger finished piece. We will be using paper source material but students could include paint, colored pencil, ect. No prior experience necessary. This class will be exploratory, fun, fast paced and a source of inspiration and empowerment to easily continue this work at home.



Class 1 - Intro to cyanotype exposures, collage material sources, gathering material.

Class 2 - Cyanotype exposures and exercises in Scale, Contrast, Composition.
