Location: AA241 Printshop 

This course will introduce the use of Lexan, an affordable, commonly available sheet plastic that can be engraved with a burin or engraving rake and worked with a drypoint needle or xacto. For this workshop the principles of drypoint and engraving will be presented, and during the morning students will develop their plate and learn how to wipe and print. During the afternoon working session, participants will be able to pull a small edition, as well as explore some monoprint variations. The plate size will be 7 x 8 inches to be printed on 11 x 15 archival paper. All supplies will be provided, but participants should come with an etching needle or xacto knife as well as a preliminary drawing or image concept for the plate.
