Etched Cyanotypes

Monday, July 29th | 1:00 - 3:00pm | Ages 9 - 12

Firehouse Art Center | Longmont, CO

Join Tinker for a special workshop at the Firehouse Art Center in Longmont! By etching into scratch art film, students will create intricate works of art before placing them on photosensitive paper and using the sun to burn, or print, the image. Cyanotypes, or sun prints, were one of the earliest forms of image reproduction, and very little has changed with the process since it’s invention in the 1840s. Don’t miss this awesome afternoon!

This workshop is sponsored by Future Arts Foundation and is open to children of local teachers, first-responders, and military members completely FREE of charge. Space is limited.

FAF Tinker Time

Tuesday, August 6th | 4:30 - 5:30pm | All Ages

Tinker Art Studio | Boulder, CO

Tinker Time is designed for children ages 5 - 12 years old; ages 18 months - 4 years old are welcome with their parents or caregivers.

Tinker Time is an opportunity for children to engage in art exploration. Several stations are set up with a variety of materials, and ideas and technique for use of materials are offered, but children have complete creative control and enjoy moving freely between stations.

Parents enjoy dropping their artist for Tinker Time to run a few errands, take a break at the coffee shop, or stay at Tinker watching their artist at work. All ages are welcome, though weekly projects are designed for children ages 5-12. If your child is under 5, we ask that a parent or caregiver remain with them in the studio to enjoy Tinker Time as a make-together style class.

This workshop is sponsored by Future Arts Foundation and is open to children of local teachers, first-responders, and military members completely FREE of charge. Space is limited.
