Intaglio: Copper Line Etch & Aquatint


Saturdays, March 9, 16 & 23, 4-7pm

Registration Deadline: March 2

Adults 18+

Printing from an etched copper plate has a truly unique look and feel, dating back to some of the earliest forms of printmaking. In this course, participants will learn how to prepare a plate, implement the best mark making techniques for this process, use an acid bath to create varying line etch and aquatint tonal values, along with learning inking and printing techniques with registration. Everyone will end with a small edition of prints and know the proper use of the studio and press. Participants should arrive with a 5x7 inch graphite line drawing on tracing paper and must be able to work on their plate between sessions. Outside of this, all materials are provided! Open to beginner and experienced students.

Instructor: Emily Jalinsky received a BFA in printmaking with an emphasis in intaglio etching and expanded media from the University of Kansas. She has taught both adult and children’s courses through the Spencer Art Museum, Manhattan Arts Center and the Iowa City Press Co-op. Her works on paper, assemblages, and installations address mindfulness in the studio process and in the viewer's experience. She lives and works in Iowa City and is the Program Coordinator at the Iowa City Press Co-op at Public Space One.
