Are you looking for a photography lesson for your students but you don't have access to cameras or a darkroom? Do you want your students to learn about how light can make a photograph? If so, this is the perfect lesson for an art or science class.
Photograms are photographic images made without a camera. To make one, students will learn how to put objects on light-sensitive photographic paper and then expose it to light. Areas of the paper that are exposed to light will change color.
A very brief introduction to how a camera works is included. Also students will learn about two photographers that make photograms- Anna Atkins and Man Ray.
Step by step instructions are included for students and teachers to follow.
To do this lesson you will need to buy a pack of Nature Print Paper (it's $9.25 for 30 sheets on Dick Blick's website)
Your students will be super excited to try this out!
