Art Studio - Printmaking: Intaglio & Lithography

Printmaking classes introduce printmaking as a creative, fine art to be explored. Students are encouraged to develop a personal vision which will instill a self-confidence that will inspire continued creative growth.

Classes are taught in a workshop environment and require students to be introspective and search for ideas, elements, forms, and feelings and develop a personal visual awareness. A willingness to experiment and an adventurous attitude are a requirement in this studio area.  

Students will acquire a sound technical background in a variety of printmaking methods: Intaglio: line etch, aquatint, soft ground, sugar lift, spitbite, drypoint, engraving, and non-toxic methods; Lithography: stone lithography, plate lithography, and light sensitive plates; and Relief and Monotypes which will provide them a strong foundation to explore imagery and concepts.
