In this class students will work on miniature-scale (3 in x 3 in) prints that can be entered in the 3rd New York International Miniature Print Exhibition (NYIMPE). Students will explore the miniature print through the use of line etching, drypoint and monotype processes. Students will work on copper or plastic and will learn how to mix etching inks and oils in order to paint multiple colors on the plate simultaneously (a la poupee). A print like this can be created with one pass through the press. The class will also discuss composition and techniques of working small. Students should come to class the first day with ideas or sketches for their miniature print.
