Students will learn to prepare their own copper plate for etching, apply hard and soft ground, use a rosin box for aquatint, and print an edition of etchings. By the end of the course, students will be able to print confidently on an etching press, and feel comfortable in choosing intaglio techniques suitable to their artistic styles.
