Students will also have an opportunity to use their painting and drawing materials to add to their printed images.

This 3-day workshop will provide the opportunity to learn and explore the exciting way of creating an image in full color in the etching technique, preparing up to 100 colors with the use of only 3 plates and 3 primary colors. You will learn to use the “additive” method that gives each color a sharp edge, distinguishing one color from the other. You will also learn the “subtractive” method where each color fuses, combines, and transforms into another through gradual transitions. Both methods require previous knowledge of and experience with aquatint etching.
