Botanical Blueprints Workshop with Linda Clark Johnson
June 25 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm
You don’t need to be an artist to enjoy making beautiful blue cyanotypes! In this introductory class you’ll learn all the basics of this fun and easy alternative photographic technique. Using light sensitive chemicals you’ll expose prints of plants in the sun and process them in water. By the time you leave you’ll have 4 gorgeous 8 x 10 blueprints and the know-how to create more at home. Lots of beautiful plants are budding and blooming during each season of the year. Let’s celebrate the natural world by making botanical blueprints together!
Linda Clark Johnson creates original artwork using the cyanotype process. Cyanotype is a historical photographic technique that uses UV light for exposures and produces deep blue images. Linda prints using local plants in her sunny Sacramento backyard. She’s been having fun perfecting her experimental printing style and sharing her knowledge with students of all ages for many years. She holds a BA in Art, a Masters in Education, and a teaching credential. Her experience in the arts and enthusiastic teaching style combine to make her classes clear, creative and fun!
