Etching is a traditional printmaking process in which lines or marks are physically bitten into a piece of metal (often copper) using an acid. This technique dates back to the sixteenth century and has been widely used by artists specializing in various mediums to create multiples of one image. Todd will give instruction and demonstrations on line etching, aquatint, ala poupee (multicolored inking) and chine-colle (adhering colored paper to a print). Each student will gain knowledge of processes such as stage biting, plate wiping and printing and works by Rembrandt, Goya and Kollwitz will be explored and discussed. Everyone will leave this class with multiple prints and variations.
