Explore the science and art of this early photographic printing process with Kingston artist Brian Hoad in this online class. The cyanotype, or sun print, recognisable by its distinctive blue tone, was invented in 1842 and has been used by artists and engineers alike. Over 175 years later the process continues to be used by many contemporary artists. This course is for participants of all levels. An art kit of material will be available for pick up at Agnes or shipped for a fee.

To participate in this program, you will need access to a stable internet connection, a free Zoom account, a computer, laptop or tablet with a camera and microphone and a dedicated space to make art. A link to this session will be sent prior to the program.
