INTAGLIO
with Erik Hougen

Fee: $395

Explore the rich and incredibly diverse possibilities of intaglio printing. This course aims to provide students with a strong command of essential intaglio techniques as well as an overview of historical and contemporary approaches to the medium. We will work through five fundamental intaglio processes: hard and soft ground etching, aquatint, sugarlift, and spitbite. While learning these fundamental techniques, you will develop two or three images and discuss issues in contemporary art with specific emphasis on printmaking. You will work on a copper plate with etching tools, and print on an intaglio press, as well as explore variations of color printing and chine collé.

RELIEF PRINTMAKING

This course will introduce you to various methods of creating woodcut and linocut prints. This direct and versatile process is one of the oldest methods of printing. Learn how to prepare wood and linoleum blocks, carve images by hand, apply ink with rollers, and print by hand and on the press using oil based inks. Also covered will be methods for creating images with multiple blocks and colors, reduction printing, and alternative techniques.

SOLAR PLATE ETCHING
with Mark Herschede
4 weeks, Thursdays, 6-9pm
February 27 – March 20

Solar plate is the safest and quickest method for creating photographic imagery in etching. Also known as photopolymer etching, this is an easy and innovative way to create intaglio and photo etchings without the use of acid and other harmful chemicals. Hand-drawn, photo-based, or digital images are exposed onto light-sensitive polymer plates, which are developed in water and printed on an etching press.
*This class uses only Akua Water-based non-toxic inks.

If you are collaging or mounting to paper, wood, metal, or cloth we will personalize and devise a glueing system that works for your practice.
