Explore the heritage of the intaglio printmaker, utilizing historic concepts and techniques to influence your approach to contemporary printmaking. Intaglio (Solarplate) Printmaking is a highly versatile and expressive medium, transforming original drawings, paintings, collage, vintage and/or contemporary photographs, JPEG’S, and copier art into high quality etchings. Create an Intaglio (Solarplate) etching using UV light (the sun) without losing your image.

You will be engaged in a variety of artistic skills and techniques; the production of printmaking practices, and participating in critiques.
