What's Included

In this intensive course inspired by the work of Anna Atkins and Bernd and Hilla Becher, students will learn the basics of the alternative photo/print process of cyanotype, including its rich history and its traditional and experimental uses. Cyanotype is a very simple process but has an infinite number of options to play with. After achieving a basic understanding of the process, students will be encouraged to create a series of work during the course of the day based on a personal collection of objects, photos, or mark making. This work will include photograms made from objects, photographic negatives printed digitally, and/or drawing/painting on mylar. Students will be asked to come prepared with a collection that they want to print. Weather permitting, this class will take place indoors and out. Saturday, June 3 from 10am-4pm $20 Materials Fee payable to the teacher on the first day of class Instructor bio: Emily Gui is an experimental printmaker and multi-media artist. She creates uncanny images of real and imagined spaces that play with perspective, form, and subject. Her work often pushes the boundaries of traditional printmaking techniques. Gui graduated from Bard College in 2012 where she focused in printmaking. She is the co-creator of CAMP (Collaborative Arts Mobility Project) Residency, a new, annual gathering that brings together artists across disciplines in new locations. In 2015 she was selected by the Print Club of New York to exhibit and speak at their annual Print Exhibition. She has also exhibited at the International Print Center of New York and has had a solo installation at Wayfarers in Brooklyn. Gui is currently an artist in residence at Kala.
