Class Description

In “Drypoint I,” students will learn the fundamentals of traditional drypoint. Using copper plates, students will learn how to transfer images onto their plates, draw on their plates, register their plates, print their plates, and modify their plates. We will use roulettes, drypoint needles, sandpaper, and other non-acid based materials. Class time will be divided into demonstrations and printing together, with suggested assignments that progress in complexity. This course is ideal for beginning students who have never made prints before, as well as advanced students who wish to expand their printmaking practice. *includes 2, 4 hour sessions of open workshop time Instructor: Rie Hasegawa was born in Tokyo, Japan.
