For tweens going into grades 4-6.

One of the earliest forms of photography, cyanotypes use the sun to imprint white silhouettes onto rich blue backgrounds. Learn about the first book of photographs and create your own unique print to take home! Participants may bring flowers, leaves, or small objects from home to use in their design. This activity requires the use of lemon juice and paper coated with ferric amonium citrate and potassium ferricyanide.

Registered participants will be able to pick up their take-home kit between Thursday, August 6-Saturday, August 8.
