Drypoint is a rich and experimental form of non-toxic intaglio printmaking. Prints are created by scribing into plexiglass with an etching tool, forcing ink into the lines, and sending plates through an etching press to reveal the image from the plate onto paper. Students will learn mark making techniques, image building, and inking/printing skills. Entry level and experienced printers welcome.
