Cyanotype and Encaustic with Susan Lasch Krevitt

Thursday, June 2
1 session

Cyanotype is a photographic process that doesn't require a camera! Most often recognized by the beautiful blue after which its named, this process is now available in a variety of colors. Using the sun (or electric light if the sun isn't cooperating!) participants in this one day workshop will create images and patterns using the cyanotype process. Paper and textiles will be used to produce elements for use with encaustic on panel. All materials needed to create the cyanotypes will be provided. Participants will be asked to bring small boards in sizes of their own choosing.

Susan Lasch Krevitt earned her BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Exhibiting artwork in the United States, Australia and Europe since 1980, her tactile abstractions blur the line between sculpture and painting. The work explores structure, connection and transformation through the manipulation of materiality and process. Susan is the featured artist in the profile article The Rhythm of the Hand, to be published in the Winter 2015 issue of Surface Design Journal. Susan currently lives and maintains a studio in Southern California.
