Etching: Expanded Workshops (CAEL2019)


This unit is designed to introduce and enhance skills in etching and is open to both students within and external to the Printmedia studio discipline. Throughout the semester students will follow a project-based curriculum in a broad range of technically based workshops intrinsic to the medium of etching. Students familiar with the intaglio process will be encouraged to engage in a sustained self-directed project addressing concepts and methodologies central to their creative ideas. This project will be supported by a series of more specialized workshops that expand on traditional approaches and encourage experimentation and exploration across media to further the development of their creative practice.
