We were fortunate to have Carol Flueckiger, an artist and Associate Professor of Art at Texas Tech University, visit our headquarters office this afternoon to deliver a hands-on Solar Powered Painting workshop to our team. The technique she has perfected over two decades uses the sun’s exposure to create cyanotype prints on paper or fabric. This was a fantastic way for us to view the work we do every day with solar energy in a whole new light.
First, Ms. Flueckiger talked about the history of cyanotype, explained her artistic process, and showed us some of the beautiful prints she had already made.
Then our team got involved with a test run of prints using flowers on small sheets of paper.
“I was amazed at the quality. This inspired me to think differently about artwork I create at home.”
