Youth Studio: Drypoint Intaglio Masterpiece
Wednesday, June 14 from 12-2pm, ages 8-12
Produce an edition of archival fine-art prints of your own drawing!
In this class, students will etch an image into a special clear printing plate by tracing their own drawing using a metal stylus. They will learn mark-making techniques, how to apply ink to an intaglio plate and print it on the etching press to create multiple works of original art. We will also incorporate some monotype techniques for additional color.
Students will take home 3 to 5 archival prints ready for framing
- All materials will be provided: BFK Rives printmaking paper, Akua drypoint plates, Akua water-based intaglio inks, and tools.
Students will be using permanent water-based inks, so please wear clothes that can get dirty!
We will be using an etching press. Students must be capable of following directions to avoid harming themselves, other students, or equipment.
