Sunny Science: Cyanotype Sun Prints
April 24 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Celebrate Earth Month, and spend some time outdoors on Lakewood’s beautiful grounds with this interactive and unique art activity. Lakewood is honored to welcome COMPAS Teaching Artist Kelley Meister for this special workshop that explores the connection between nature and art in an exciting and unexpected way!
Using cyanotypes, a simple, nontoxic photographic process that uses the sun for exposure and water as developer, participants explore how UV light from the sun can create art. For the workshop, participants will create a paper cyanotype print to take home using drawings, paper cut-outs, objects from nature, their bodies, and/or other opaque objects.
This event is open to everyone, but registration is required!
Please note, this is a reschedule date from earlier in the month.

The Lakewood Garden Mausoleum
This event will take place in the upper level reception space of our beautiful Garden Mausoleum. This modern building was designed in 2012 by HGA Architects and serves as both an active mausoleum and a community space, making it the perfect location for grief and remembrance events.
