Students in the Wednesday teen class had an exciting opportunity to work with local Bronx artist Monica Flores. Monica is the co-founder of a grassroots community collective known as “Hydro Punk”, where they organize cultural community events and educational workshops in the Bronx.
Students learned what a cyanotype is and how to make their own. They had a great time in the darkroom learning how to coat the paper with the cyanotype liquid to make the paper light sensitive, and then creating their print from a digital negative.
