Etching is a diverse process, offering an artist a unique set of tools and marks with which to experiment and communicate. This Make + Take will introduce students to the fundamentals of line etching, a chemical, repeatable process involving a copper plate, with the look of a pen and ink drawing. Beginning with a line drawing, we will cover basic techniques including plate preparation, applying a ground, etching and printing. At the end of the evening, students will leave with a plate and finished proof.
