Take your best drawings further by creating limited edition prints on the press housed at ArtsAlive! in this five-week evening class.

Join Ben Dize for an exploration of printmaking through Acid Etching. Often known for its fine-arts applications, this medium lends itself to drawing, embracing and utilizing line techniques such as cross-hatching and line variation. This process dates back hundreds of years and was popularized by artists such as Rembrandt and Durer.

Students should come with an image (sized 6″x 8″ or smaller) to transfer to plates prepared by the instructor.   Drawings should be primarily linear, but we can do tonal passages with aquatint if desired.  For this method, tonal areas can’t be transitional—just one tone per area. Please contact RiverArts with any questions!

A $15 supply fee will be payable to the instructor on the first day of class.

Ages: 16+

Suggested experience level: No experience needed, beginners through advanced welcome.
