Introduction to Etching: Aluminum Plates
April 22 – June 3 (6 weeks, no class May 20)
$250 (+ MPA membership*)
Etching can result in prints of wonderful subtlety and richness. This course introduces the basic principles of etching. We will use aluminum plates, which etch rapidly in a bath of copper sulfate, table salt and water. You will learn how to prepare your plate for etching, how to etch crisp lines, how to produce areas of tone and how to introduce colour to your print. No prior etching experience required.
