Printmaking: Relief and Etching Explorations

4 weeks (no class Feb 19)

Relief prints are created by carving an image into wood or linoleum, adding ink to the surface, and transferring the inked image onto paper. Etching, also known as Intaglio [in-tal-yoh], is a family of printing techniques in which the image is incised into a metal plate. Artists can scratch into plates with needles, or can draw through a ground and etch drawings into a plate.

Together, these processes provide an exciting range that opens new possibilities for artists or those wanting to experiment with new art forms. All levels welcome. Cost $150 includes all materials.
