JAN 23 – FEB 13, 2020
Instructor: Brett Grunig
This beginner’s class will focus on the process of intaglio printmaking using soft-ground techniques. Students will learn to use soft-ground to draw with soft, pencil-like lines, textures, and tonal affects that are often difficult to achieve with line-etch or dry-point techniques.
For the materials fee, three copper plates will be prepared and provided to students.
Please bring the following materials:
- 2 sheets of Rives BFK printmaking paper (22″ x 30″)
- Graphite pencils (HB for sketching, 4H for softground)
- Ballpoint pen
- Sketchbooks or note-paper for sketching and note-taking are encouraged.
$25 materials fee payable to instructor at start of class.
