Are you someone who loves to take photographs but wants to explore more interesting ways of printing your images? Solar plate etching and layered printmaking methods allow photographic images to be transformed into distinctive works of art. Solar plates are light-sensitized polymer sheets that offer a non-toxic way to create etchings and relief-prints. Using solar plates, we will design and produce transfer prints while learning how to achieve depth, range of tone, and cohesion of colors. Bring in your own photographs or use class-provided materials to produce a number of compelling prints.
