This three-day adventure has been designed to address problem solving for the best printing results for intaglio and relief prints with an emphasis on understanding black ink and ink viscosity. Each student will produce six to twelve prints. Starting with drypoint (Matisse-style), students will inscribe an image and print it intaglio. In the second class students will develop a Degas-style monoprint in black ink on that drypoint plate. On the third day students will advance to a viscosity monoprint a la Krishna Reddy. Two plastic plates (16” x 12”, 20 gauge) will be provided. imited to 8 students.
