The Fall I class is 4 weeks only, meeting on Sept 16, Oct 7, Oct 14 and Oct 21.
Introduction to basic and safe methods of etching with a non-acid solution (ferric chloride) using copper plates. While drawing ability would be helpful for artists completely new to etching, printmaking experience is not necessary to take this class. Those with etching experience can expand on more advanced techniques or try mezzotints. The use of a large and small etching press, aquatint box and other equipment will be covered. Ages 17 and up.
