Drypoint from the Landscape

Participants will complete a small edition of prints from metal plates worked entirely without acids, using a traditional technique called drypoint taught by printmaker Brian D. Cohen.  In drypoint, an artist draws directly on a metal plate, creating lines and textures that will hold ink when printed.  The drypoint medium is a wonderful means of making a drawing directly from observation into a print, without toxic chemicals or technical obstacles.  The softness, variety, and warmth of the drypoint line is uniquely expressive among all printmaking media.   The starting point for our imagery in this class will be observation from a site in the local landscape.

Cost is $115 or $100 for Chaffee Members and includes all materials.

For ages 16 and Up. Advance Registration is required.  Register online or contact us at (802) 775-0356 or [email protected].
