6 hour class
Inspiring short introduction to drypoint printmaking with artist Chris Christodoulou. Chris will show you how to achieve rich black tones and complex imagery using simple drypoint techniques on easily available acrylic plastic sheet. You can take plates out of the studio to draw on or bring material to work from such as photographs, sketchbooks, drawings or other ideas. You will explore how to achieve a range of marks on the acrylic sheet and learn how to ink and print the plates to achieve the dark and smudgy lines characteristic of drypoint, and which Chris uses to such good effect in his own work.
