SOAKING UP THE SUN, LITERALLY: Khris Pelzer and her grandsons, Evan and Carter, teamed up with the sunshine that has been warming up Gothenburg to make cyanotype photographs. The photographs are made by collecting items found in nature. The boys hunted for their items at Lake Helen, then placed them on the paper coated with light sensitive chemicals. After allowing the paper to soak up some sunrays, the objects were removed and the paper was rinsed to reveal the photo of the object. “I remember doing this kind of art when I was in school and thinking it was really cool,” shared Khris, who is discovering that having a schedule is helping them stay on track with their schoolwork.
