      Cyanotype: Early Photographic Process

      VALID PCC EMAIL ACCOUNT REQUIRED TO REGISTER Join Charity Valentine, Department Chair of the Fine Arts Program, as she guides us through the process of creating cyanotypes. What is cyanotype, you ask?  Cyanotype is a photographic printing process that produces a cyan-blue print. Engineers used the process well into the 20th century as a simple and low-cost process to produce copies of drawings, referred to as blueprints. The process uses two chemicals: ferric ammonium citrate and potassium ferricyanide.  In this workshop you will learn to harness the power of the Sun! Well, kind of. Join us for a sunny Friday afternoon where you will learn a little photographic history, a little chemistry, all while creating beautiful blue photograms.  Seating is limited for this event and all supplies will be provided. This is a Teaching and Learning sanctioned event.
