INTRODUCTION TO THE WORKSHOP

The workshop is aimed both at people who are new to printmaking and those who have already made some incursion into this discipline. We will open the course with a study of the graphic possibilities of the line in drypoint and we will deal with the meeting points that this direct and primordial technique has with drawing. Aquatint will be used as an additional process to create backgrounds or tonal planes, in the same matrix or in a complementary matrix.

We intend to focus the development of the course from the dynamics of a printmaking workshop so that it will be an example for future initiatives of the participants, in this sense, they will participate in the whole process necessary for the elaboration of the work in an autonomous way.

The participants will have 4 plates of 12.5 x 16.5 cm format (1 copper, 2 zinc and 1 methacrylate).
