Students will be introduced to basic printmaking practice and will develop these skills over the duration of the course. We will begin the course by introducing students to a series of printmaking methods, creating a line on a copper plate (hard ground and soft ground) and creating tone on a plate (aquatint). As the course develops students can also employ techniques such as sugar lift and spit bite to work further into the image on their plates.
