Event Description

This summer, the CRMA’s exhibition of local artists focuses on the color blue, so Doodlebugs celebrates all things blue, too. Learn about the tints and shades of this hue, experiment with blue media, and check out famous artists who also emphasized blue in their work! Nothing chases away the blues like art!

Cyanotype is a form of printmaking that uses the sun. The finished piece turns blue, which is where the term “blueprint” comes from. We will be trying it for ourselves!
