Etching in Color: Independent Directions
Section A Meets 2/2/2013 to 5/4/2013
from 10:00 AM to 1:15 PM.
Remarkable for the rich range of values and textures, the etching medium allows the artist to create effects from soft, almost imperceptible tones to deeply gouged lines. Students work with multiple zinc or copper printing plates and inks, and learn a range of etching techniques including line etching, aquatint, soft ground, and drypoint. Each student applies these techniques to their own body of work and sets their own itinerary of projects for the semester. Frequent group critiques give students the opportunity to learn from each other as they explore technical concerns and delve into the content and meaning of their series of prints.
