Intro to Drypoint (Intaglio)

A great introduction to the intaglio process! Drypoint is done by drawing directly on a plate using a sharp pointed tool without using acid. Drypoint is known for its velvety, rich, tonal line and textural quality that results when a burr is lifted in the metal (or plexiglass) plate during the drawing process. Students will create one image and we will spend the afternoon drawing, proofing and printing.A great workshop for beginners. All levels welcome!
Plexiglass plates, paper, inks and instructional handout provided.  

Students should come prepared with some ideas (helpful if sketches/reference materials are 5x7 which is the size of the plate we will be using)
