PRINTING WITH LIGHT: Solar Plate Etching and Layered Printmaking with Tara Berkebile
Are you someone who loves to take photographs but wants to take those images a step further? 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 can be used to create unique prints, etchings and relief-prints. Using this non-toxic approach, students will design and create their own 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 several beautiful prints.
