Photo-based Dry-Point Etching prints
Workshop or Residency for grades 9th through 12th
If a Printing press is available, students will create a dry-point etching plate. We will work from Xerox copies of photographs, images or drawings, and use a shapr etching needle to scratch the image onto a thin piece of clear mylar. Next students will ink up plates and print onto damp paper through a printing press. Multiple prints can be made to exchange with other students, or use mixed media to alter each print differently.
Imagery can integrate various subject matter, and range anywhere from nature, science, mathematics, health topics, technology, language, etc
Content can be modified to work with curriculum and lesson plans.
