Course Description

Intaglio printing means printing ink from the incised marks in a plate or matrix. Etching means that acid is used to corrode these marks into the plate. This is a course for beginning students seeking thorough exposure to intaglio printmaking, both etched and not, who wish to explore the medium in greater depth. In addition to etching basics (hard ground, soft ground, and aquatint), we will give special attention to a broad array of intaglio applications: found objects, collagraph approaches, alternative plates (non-etched), collage, and monoprint techniques.
