Creating Water Portraits: The Influence of Memory

Join March gallery artist Keri Rosebraugh in a unique workshop exploring our precious resource called water: our connection with it, the mystical aspects of it, and how we can collaborate with it in our own artwork.

Students will begin the day with group activities involving water and will work together to create a large medicine water wheel outside to energize, celebrate, and honor water. Weather permitting, we will utilize the ocean tide and combine salt water and sand with our own interpretations of water on paper.

The afternoon will entail creating Cyanotype prints, which is a photographic printing process that produces blue prints using coated paper and light. We will then soak the prints in water to complete our images. Using objects from nature found near the Hoffman Center for the Arts, we will form various shapes and shadows in our prints. This workshop emphasizes experimentation, investigation, and the discovery of how water plays an important role in our lives.
