This course explores etching with a focus on line, texture and tone; an approach which can be both graphic and painterly, originally utilised by Francesco Goya and still employed by contemporary artists today. Using a low-toxic saline sulphate mordant, you’ll learn to paint with sugar and etch aluminium and zinc plate to realise a series of print editions.

Processes will be demonstrated week by week during the first half of term. Your tutor will support you fully throughout the course in both group sessions and one-to-one support, providing regular feedback, critique and constructive advice. Although the course has a general theme and approach there is no fixed or prescriptive methodology and individuals are encouraged to blend their own experience with all aspects of this course.

What level is this course?

This course is suitable for all levels. Students can move at their own pace depending on their experience, with as much support from the Tutor as they wish.

  • Beginner

    Choose a Beginners course if you are looking for a broad introduction to the medium you are studying. Students spend time learning the very basics of the taught medium, for example, how to mix colours, use different tools, set up an easel. Our Beginner courses are suitable for students with no prior experience, they tend to follow a more structured path than our other courses, ensuring each student receives the guidance they need from the tutor.

  • Beginner +

    Choose a Beginner + course if you are looking to hone your skills, focus on a specific subject area and build your confidence. These courses are suitable for those with some basic skills in and knowledge of the taught medium, but still follow a structured path with guidance from the tutor.

  • Intermediate

    Our Intermediate courses are suitable for students who have considerable prior knowledge of the taught medium or have completed a Beginners/Beginners + course with the Art Academy.

    These courses tend to be less structured and instead are tailored to the classes’ needs and the direction they want to advance in. Choose an Intermediate course if you are looking to improve your skills and have more critical discussions around the work you produce.

  • Advanced

    Choose our Advanced courses if you have considerable knowledge in the taught medium. You are expected to be able to work independently and have critical discussions around your work.

     Our Advanced courses include our Masterclasses.

All attendees must be aged 18 or over.

What should I bring?

YOU MUST BRING YOUR OWN MATERIALS.

Materials for this course must be paid for, including plates, paper, inks, chemicals, grounds and various sundries. The basic materials cost for the course is £40 per student, payable at the start of the course.  The tutor will advise on extra costs depending upon how many plates you create.
