Into the Sun

It is Friday

The weather is fine

Here's a lesson plan for solar-powered printmaking which is posted over at Blick Art Materials. They would like you to buy special photo-sensitive paper for this project. You can get the paper at any art supply store, and the process is explained below:

A "cyanotype" is a photographic print made when UV light is exposed to a photo-sensitive paper. This lesson plan is a simple new process involving two safe and familiar classroom favorites — Nature Print Paper and Scratch Art. The finished arwork has the appearance of a linoleum block print — without the use of cutting tools or ink.
Grade Level: 3 – 8
