Sutdents will learn to translate the many textures and colors seen and experienced in their daily lives into art. As the Etching Press is a very important part of collagraph art, students will learn the use of the Etching Press including basic principles and safety. At the conclusion of this course students will have an understanding of the collagraph technique and will have even created their very own prints.
