Guests artists week at ICP at THE POINT: Wednesday Teen class with Chantal Heijnen and Guest Artist Monica Flores

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.
