This introduction to polymer intaglio printmaking provides a solid foundation in the basic techniques of (blind) embossing, monoprint, and collograph. The distinctive qualities of these techniques, as well as the ways in which they may be combined, are explored. Professional practice in proofing and printing is emphasized. Intaglio printmaking is presented not only as a reproductive process, but also as a medium of tremendous expressive potential in its own right. The connection between printmaking and other media (drawing, painting, sculpture) is also examined.  Activity 6 hours.  This course may be repeated to maximum of 12 units.  $20 Lab fee
