In this course, we will learn the topography of the face. We will work on trying to concur the stereotypes that are in our heads about the human face and try to see what is really there. Through the use of demonstration, a slide show, and one-on-one teaching, we will get a better understanding of what makes up the face and why it is different from what we might imagine.

Cyanotype is “blue magic”, and students of all ages enjoy making sunprints. This alternative photo process is an easy way to teach many artistic principles: composition, negative space, texture, and pattern. During the hands-on call, you will learn history of the process and a “little chemistry”. Then you will design your own print. You will walk away with your prints, a supply list and directions, and the know-how to make your own.
