Kim Van Someren will share her expertise in drypoint, a form of non-toxic intaglio printmaking in which lines are incised directly into a plate without ground or acid. She will be teaching a variety of techniques in mark-making with sharp tools on plexiglass plates. Students will learn how to use multiple plates to create complex finished pieces. Textures, tones, lines, and colors are built up in layers and can be printed in both unique forms or small editions. Students will learn image building, wiping and printing, and multiple plate printing techniques to produce a small body of printed work.
