Years ago when I was a Montessori teacher, I began leading summer art camps for children. My love of teaching art lead me to offer adult classes as well, and they were hugely successful. Since then I have facilitated multiple classes of all genres with one main thread - CREATIVITY UNLEASHED. From small venues and private residences to The Cameron Art Museum, Museum School, my workshops and classes have been widely received across the Southeast, touted as energetic, fun, and inspiring, and best of all - no rules! Having been an avid art journal keeper for many years, I often weave this into classes, as well as all kinds of mixed media and collage, and even some plaster and book making!

'forest blues' one day cyanotype immersion in the blue ridge mountains *THIS CLASS IS POSTPONED
friday, may 19 NEW DATES WILL BE POSTED AT A LATER DATE
Cyanotypes are a printing process that utilizes ultraviolet rays to create a gorgeous cyan blue around organic objects placed on prepared paper.
In this one day immersion, we will explore some of the many possibilities in the world of cyanotypes! Kim will share dried flora and fauna from the forest to create a collection of cyanotypes on an array of prepared papers. The end result is a beautiful print that can be framed on its own or used later in collage or paintings. Kim will go over the basics of cyanotypes and have lots of examples to share for inspiration.
All supplies and prepared papers are included. We will have an assortment of dried flora and fauna, but please feel free to bring your own pressed flowers/ leaves/ organic material. It must be dry and pressed flat.
