Studio Saturday: Printing with Sunlight

Yazoo Plaza

Saturday, November 4, 2023 at 10:00am - 12:00pm


Join us for the next installation of our “Studio Saturday” program: a cyanotype demonstration and workshop with local photographer and printmaker Eleanor Owen Kerr. This workshop will take place on Saturday, November 4, from 10 AM to 12 PM in LASM's Yazoo Plaza breezeway.  

LASM’s “Studio Saturday” program provides the Baton Rouge community with opportunities to learn about various styles of artmaking from local artists. The museum’s next “Studio Saturday” art class will be Printing with Sunlight, a cyanotype printing workshop taught by local photographer and printmaker Eleanor Owen Kerr. Kerr will share her cyanotype process, demonstrate the hand-coating technique, and guide students in composing, exposing, and developing several prints. Students will create their own cyanotype artworks to take home and participate in the creation of a cyanotype fabric mural.  

Kerr’s Illuminations series, described by Kerr as being “created in nature, about nature, by nature,” is featured in LASM’s current exhibition Celestial Imaginings: Artists Exploring the Galaxies, which is currently on view in The Republic Finance Gallery until January 26, 2024.

The enrollment fee for this class is $35 for non-members, $25 for LASM members, and includes all supplies. The cyanotype “Studio Saturday” will be held in the Yazoo Plaza breezeway for students ages 14+. A limited number of scholarships are available for this class through an ArtLean Scholarship fund sponsored by Dr. Khanh Ho and LASM. Contact Tracey Barhorst at tbarhorst@lasm.org for more information.  

LASM’s “Studio Saturdays” are supported by a grant from the Louisiana Division of the Arts, Office of Cultural Development, Department of Culture, Recreation and Tourism, in cooperation with the Louisiana State Arts Council, as administered by the RAC. Funding has also been provided by the National Endowment of the Arts and funded in part by the Alma Lee, Norman and Cary Saurage Fund of the Baton Rouge Area Foundation on behalf of Cary Saurage.
