New Orleans Museum of Art
Getting there
1 Collins Diboll Circle, New Orleans, LA

Join us for an exploration of the history and methods of the cyanotype process. This workshop begins with an overview of the camera-less photographic process, also known as the blueprint process, from its roots in the mid-nineteenth century to the present. Participants then move into NOMA’s art studio for a hands-on lesson in creating their own cyanotypes. Lunch and all needed supplies will be provided. NOMA members $65 | Nonmembers $80 REGISTER NOW Registration includes a boxed lunch during the workshop About the Artist: Robert A. Schaefer Jr. began learning about photography while studying architecture at Auburn University in his home state of Alabama. He continued to refine his understanding of the craft at the Technische Universität of Munich, Germany. He has exhibited his cyanotype images at the Huntsville Museum of Art in Alabama, Goethe-Institut/Max Mueller Bhavan in Delhi, India, Government Museum and Art Gallery in Chandigarh, India, and Lightbox Photographic Gallery in Astoria, Oregon. In 2015, he held an artist residency at Can Serrat in Barcelona, Spain, where he produced a series of cyanotypes depicting the city. In 2015, after twelve years teaching photography at New York University, Schaefer moved to New Orleans. He teaches cyanotype workshops at the Penumbra Foundation’s Center for Alternative Photography in New York and now, sponsored by Penumbra, in New Orleans. His work is represented by the Domeischel Gallery.
