Expressive Art Group: Nature Print

Before Summer leaves this year, let’s venture outside and soak up the last of the Summer Sun with Nature Print Paper!  Thanks to some simple chemistry, this special paper reacts to sunlight creating print images from items placed on top of the paper.  We will be setting up our designs and sun printing our work, weather permitting.  Once the design develops, we soak the paper in water for a minute, dry the paper, then our artwork is complete!
