This course will merge non-toxic photosensitive technology with traditional methods for making printed works of art by hand. In addition to utilizing time-honored etching methods for making prints on paper, we'll explore two different processes used to create photo-based etchings. The first process will cover how to use a light sensitive film called ImageOn to create an intaglio plate. The second process will explore exposing images onto a photopolymer plate. Options for creating hand-drawn and digital negatives for exposing plates, inking, paper preparation, and printing will be covered in the class as well as safe use of exposure equipment, etchants, and printing presses.
