ART 315 - Intaglio Printmaking


This course introduces the various traditional and contemporary plate-making techniques and the printing process used to create an intaglio print. Students will explore both hand techniques such as drypoint, engraving and mezzotint; as well as etching techniques, including line etching, soft ground, aquatint, and spitbite. Collagraphs and/or Solarplates are also introduced as alternative plate-making methods. Technical aspects of printing include viscosity printing, registration, and edition printing for class portfolio projects. While learning to employ the various intaglio techniques, students explore their creative process, including the discipline of keeping a sketchbook, as they develop and refine concepts and composition in projects that emphasize personal imagery and narratives.
