About the event
This month's free Amplify! Workshop will be led by Artist Mert Jones.
This program is a great way to experience the history of photography! The Cyanotype is one of the earliest forms of photography, which uses only light-sensitive paper and sunlight. Students will receive a fun, hands-on approach to understanding light by creating their own individual sun print-or cyanotype.
The workshop will be a fully hands-on experience that combines art and nature! Participants will take home the Cyanotype they make. --- Mert is the Education Director at The Light Factory Photo Arts Center. She artist who has been working and showing art in her native city of Charlotte for the past two decades. Mert received her Associate of Fine Arts from Central Piedmont Community College in 2005. She then Studied at UNCC in the Bachelor of Fine Arts Program. She is continuing her artistic journey through grant and residency program applications.
Her current art focuses on alternative photography methods, particularly with wet cyanotypes. She is experimenting with themes of self-discovery and creating order in chaos. Mert is a 2020 Community Supported Artist through the Arts and Science Council of Charlotte.
