Anchor Graphics Fall 2014 Printmaking Classes



Photogravure with Chris Flynn
Wednesday Evenings 6-9PM – Sept. 17 – Nov. 19, 2014

Photogravure, as perfected by Karl Klic in 1879, is still the most versatile process for producing continuous tone, photographic intaglio prints. Etching, drawing, painting, photography and digital imaging aesthetics come together on a single plate that can be endlessly manipulated. Plate reworking and hand-etching techniques will also be covered along with various printing tricks and image making strategies.

Etching + Intaglio with Megan Sterling
Monday Evenings 6-9PM – Sept. 15 – Nov. 17, 2014,

Work with artist/printmaker Megan Sterling on understanding and navigating the many stages that go into working with copperplate etching. All skill-levels are welcome: inexperienced students will be guided through basic to more complex techniques while seasoned participants can receive personalized support and develop their work. Students should bring their own drawings to the first class and be prepared to start translating their ideas into this complex and ultimately satisfying art medium. 5″ x 7″ copper plates will be available for purchase the first day of class; custom plate sizes will be available in subsequent classes as needed.
