Learn to create cyanotypes, a photographic printing process that uses the sun to develop images and creates a vibrant deep cyan-blue print. The technique dates from the late 1800s and was first used to create blueprints for architecture, then used artistically by Anna Atkins to create the first photograms. Participants will create their own printing plates using digital photo negatives, cut paper, found botanicals, crayon, and ink. The class covers the mixing and application of cyanotype chemistry on paper and fabric, as well as several tinting methods that can be used to vary the iconic blue print.

Through this diverse and fun photographic printmaking process, participants can expect to work in the dark room, in the WSW studios, and outside to create dynamic works of art. Participants will leave with several quick experimental prints to cover techniques, as well as a run of 5 finished original cyanotypes from a design they work on throughout the week. On the last day, the class will create a large-scale cyanotype mural together.


Artist

Sarah Fox

Sarah Fox’s multi-media narratives and characters are created from embodied female experience. Stories of life, loss, love, and sex are told through corporeal hybrid creatures. The resulting collages, drawings, sculptures, and animations suggest a childlike fairytale but with an undercurrent of dark symbolism. Her work has been shown throughout Texas, as well as in the Kinsey Institute (Bloomington, Indiana), Field Projects Gallery (New York, New York), Espacio Dörffi (Lanzarote, Canary Islands), Bedsetter Art Fair (Vienna, Austria), Atelierhaus Hilmsen (Hilmsen, Germany) and Casa Lu (Mexico City, Mexico). She lives and works in San Antonio, Texas where she is the co-director of the innovative community art space Clamp Light Studios and Gallery, the exhibition director for the Brick Gallery in the Blue Star Arts Complex, and serves as board chair of the month long arts celebration Contemporary Art Month.
