Master Printer Series: Jump Start Etching-Photoetching on Copper
Artists in this course will ‘jump start’ the etching process by transferring drawings or photos from clear film onto photo-sensitive copper etching plates and then develop them further through more traditional means. Master Printer James Stroud will then help students find and employ creative printing techniques to further resolve their images.
