Our classes are offered in the exciting, lively environment of a communal studio space - work alongside other students and artists in a productive, working studio! We like to think of our classes as workshops - informal, personal, improvisational and welcoming to everyone. Boost your skill set, up your game, learn things that could lead to new adventures in work and creativity.

PLEASE register for your desired class at least 3 DAYS IN ADVANCE! We may have to cancel a class by this date if we do not meet minimum enrollment. Updated registration information is available here!

ETCHING (DRYPOINT & INTAGLIO)

QUICK, FUN DRYPOINT PLATES 

QUICK, FUN DRYPOINT PLATES 

Etching (or intaglio) is a printing process that uses an etched or engraved plate made by etching lines into the metal surface with acid. The plate is printed by smearing it with ink, wiping it clean and printing the ink left in the recesses. Drypoint is a fast, fun way of making a print by carving directly into a metal plate. It's magical and wonderful and you should try it!
