Etching is a technique that allows the printmaker to achieve wide tonal range and unlimited detail. Using zinc plates students learn to produce images with line etching, aquatint, soft ground etching, and drypoint techniques as they print small editions. A $40 lab fee is payable to the instructor.
The Art League, through association with Discover Graphics Atelier, Inc., offers a wide range of printmaking classes. Discover Graphics is a fully equipped printmaking studio with two etching and two lithographic presses and all the necessary equipment for quality printmaking. Experienced printmakers may apply to be affiliated artists and pay a monthly fee to cover basic supplies and equipment during open studio hours. For information call 703-549-1381 or contact us at www.discovergraphics.org.
Supplies: Most supplies are available in the classroom. Other supplies are available in the Art League Store and will be discussed by the instructor at the first class.
