Intaglio Workshop (Spring 2014)
This class will help students develop a comprehensive approach and a means for understanding, defining, making, and interrogating their practice of intaglio printmaking. Embracing the artist and the artisan, this class will appeal to those interested in the idea of learning how to produce and make their own distinctly beautiful impressions and multiples.
The intaglio processes on copper plates that will be covered in this class are soft and hard ground etching; spray aquatints; drypoint and chine-collé. Students will be guided through the array of possibilities related to the creating of a matrix and the making of intaglio multiples. The final work will articulate the individual’s aesthetic direction. Previous drawing experience recommended, but not required. / Materials fee of $25 and facilities fee of $27 in addition to class tuition. / Open to students ages 16 and above.
What to Bring: Soft graphite drawing pencils: X-Acto knife; your ideas and possibly drawings of prints you’d like to make. Also, by the start of the second class students should have 5 sheets of 22” x 30” Rives BFK white printmaking paper. This paper is sold at most art supply stores in the area including the Art Cellar located in MCAD, Wet Paint in St. Paul, and Dick Blick Art Supplies stores.
