January 24 – March 13, 2012
Supply fee and tuition or part one of four payment plan installments due to register.
This eight-week course will teach the essentials to printmaking from copper plates, a medium rooted in five hundred years of history. The first week will familiarize students with the press as they create monotypes from pattern rich still life arrangements. The second and third week will cover techniques for dry point with monotype applications, and weeks four through eight will concentrate on the etching process. Historical contexts with artists ranging from Rembrandt and Goya to Whistler and Hopper will complement class time. Still life materials will be available each week, although students are invited to bring objects of their own liking, or work from existing drawings and photographs. It is also recommended that students save time for some drawing work at home throughout the workshop’s duration.

The printmaking studio will be available for extended work one hour after each two-hour class. This workshop will use a floor model American French Tool Etching Press: plate bed 24” x 48”, and print shop equipped with a ferric chloride acid bath, asphaltum station, aquatint chamber, and heated inking station.

Student should have a strong interest in drawing.
