Youth ages 14 to 18 are invited to join regional artist Mary Anne Barkhouse to create prints using the cyanotype process. Pioneered in 1842 by Sir John Herschel, cyanotypes are made by exposing sensitized paper or fabric to an ultra-violet light-source to create deep blue images. Participants are encouraged to bring objects that could be used to create photograms in conjunction with artwork that can be created on transparencies.
 
Mary Anne Barkhouse was born in Vancouver, BC, but has strong ties to both coasts as her mother is from the Nimpkish band, Kwakiutl First Nation of Alert Bay, BC and her father is of German and British descent from Nova Scotia. As a result of her personal and family experiences with land and water stewardship, Barkhouse examines ecological concerns and the intersections of culture through the use of animal imagery. Inspired by issues surrounding empire and survival, she creates installations that evoke consideration of the self as a response to history and environment. Mary Anne Barkhouse currently resides in Minden, Ontario.
