Event Navigation

On Saturday, September 14, from 1 to 4 p.m. the Oklahoma History Center will host a class all about creating cyanotypes, which is one of the oldest photographic printing processes. It uses sunlight and water to create unique impressions.

Students will learn cyanotype processes and create their own artwork using native plants and sun printing techniques. Photographer and artist Jim Meeks will be the instructor. Meeks is the photo editor of the Oklahoma Historical Society Research Division.

The class costs $30 for members of the Oklahoma Historical Society and $40 for nonmembers. All supplies are included in the cost.
