Thanks to the Sunprints, UC Berkeley, Learning to See in Mexico had the opportunity to expirement with basic photography without having a darkroom, we used the sun as our source of light with special blue paper.

During the past two weeks I have been teaching 5th grade students from Kennebunk and Kennebunkport, Maine at The Heartwood College of Art Artwood Bound Program. We are learning the basics of B&W photography, doing photograms in the darkroom, I also call them silhouette prints. They caught on quick, not only to the technique but they were very creative in their compositions and use of materials.
