Special Mezzotint Workshop with Visiting Artist Eun-Ji Choi
Winner of the 2015 International Print Exhibition
Don’t miss this chance to work with a master of mezzotint! In this unique intaglio technique the plate is worked in reverse; from dark tones to light. The surface is first roughened with a mezzotint rocker so that, if inked, it would print a rich, solid black. The areas that are not to print are then burnished and flattened to produce various grays and white. The outstanding qualities of the mezzotint process produce the most subtle nuances of tone and value from rich, velvety blacks to glowing highlights.
Students will work with master printmaker and winner of our 2015 International Print Exhibition Eun-Ji Choi to learn the entire process from rocking a copper plate to drawing the image and printing. The three color process will be introduced if time allows.
