with Sam Dahl
Thursdays: April 6, 13, 20, 27; 6-9pm
Learn how to turn drawings and photographs into intaglio prints using non-toxic printmaking methods. Instruction will cover techniques for exposing solar plates with UV rays from a light box and from the sun to etch drawings and photographs (or a combination of the two) onto the plates. Then, learn to ink plates and print them on an etching press to make a small edition of prints to exchange with the class.
