Cyanotypes (Photographic Sun Prints)

$15 per student (Ages 3 and up. Children age 5 and under must be accompanied by an adult).


Learn how to harness the sun with this introduction to cyanotypes!  A great hands-on summer art project that encourages students to get outside, the cyanotype (a.k.a. sunprint) is a hand-applied photographic process that exposes in sunlight and develops in water resulting in a beautiful blue image.  Open to students of ages 3 and up (young artists under the age of 6 should be accompanied by a parent), participants will have the opportunity to coat their own paper to make artwork with the sun all while learning a bit about photographic history and fun. Instructors Ualani Davis and Brandon Ng, former Orvis Artists-in-Residence at the Honolulu Museum of Art, are excited to expose a new generation of young creatives to this fun form of photography.
