PRINT & LETTERPRESS SUMMER SESSION 2
JUNE 4–16, 2023
Intense Color Intaglio Intensive
Multiple-plate intaglio offers unparalleled color intensity, saturating paper with layers of pigmented ink. Using no specific key plate, we’ll explore three-layer printing and registration to create a full range of color. We’ll start with textural processes to create tonal range: aquatint, spit bite, soft ground, crayon resist, scraping, and burnishing. Then we’ll move on to multiple-plate registration, color combinations, and ink mixing. The work of various artists will serve as inspiration, and students will be encouraged to work in the style of their preference, as both figurative and abstract approaches will benefit from these uniquely stunning processes. All levels. Printmaking studio.
