I am a mixed media visual artist working with cyanotype printmaking techniques. My goal is to inspire experimentation and collaboration, using the magic of art to help students build on their sense of belonging and community. My approach asks guiding questions that weave in experiential learning through art making. I have a Bachelor's degree in Art Education and have facilitated workshops with students in elementary schools, high schools and adults in a variety of school and community settings.

Creative Approach and Experiences Offered

I offer cyanotype printing lessons that focus on noticing and observing our surroundings and our role within those spaces.

Students are invited on scavenger hunts to collect items from outdoor and indoor environments. They select items to place on their UV sensitive papers and expose them using the sun or UV lamps. Once students become comfortable with the technique, we reflect on how we can experiment further with photographs, acetate drawings and embellishments.

Themes: community, environment, and sense of belonging. The cyanotype process creates a naturally collaborative environment. There is a lot of sharing of discoveries, walking around to different stations and helping others. Themes and guiding questions are brainstormed in groups to encourage discussion and collaboration.

Projects can include:
- series of prints on paper
- collective fabric quilts or banners
- prints on bags/clothing
- large collective murals

This medium is very magical and adaptable.

One-Day Event Description

Cyanotype Printmaking

Using the traditional cyanotype printing technique, participants will explore how to create with light. Participants will collect objects, choose photographs, create drawings and play around with varying compositions and layers. The question: "Who/what do we want to celebrate?” will guide discussions around how students will transform their prints into gratitude cards. The process for each print is about 15 minutes which allows students to create multiple pieces and encourages experimentation and collaboration. Option to create a large collaborative piece that can be gifted to a community.

31-60 students per group.
