Title:   Introduction to Intaglio and Etching      

Course Number:      PRT 007001
Campus: Boston-Fenway   
Room: TBA

Course Description:

Intaglio printing means printing ink from the incised marks in a plate or matrix. Etching means that acid is used to corrode these marks into the plate. This is a course for beginning students seeking thorough exposure to intaglio printmaking, both etched and not, and for intermediate/advanced students who wish to explore the medium in greater depth. In addition to etching basics (hard ground, soft ground, and aquatint), we will give special attention to a broad array of intaglio applications: found objects, collagraph approaches, alternative plates (non-etched), collage, and monoprint techniques.
