In this course students will learn how to make intaglio prints using photo-etching techniques with Puretch Film, which specializes in safe and affordable photo-printing innovation. The process is nontoxic, relatively fast and has become an extremely popular way to combine photography and printmaking. At the core of this process a light-sensitive photopolymer film that adheres to the printing plate. Imagery created both by hand or output digitally can then be exposed onto the sensitized plate, developed, and printed using a traditional etching press. The results are remarkable and open up the etching medium to a range of creative possibilities. Students will learn about materials and methods associated with digital imaging and photo processing as well as working in a traditional print shop environment. Students will also learn alternative intaglio process to work their plates once an image has been etched into a metal plate.
