Studio Workshop

Printmaking: Drawing with Drypoint

Scratch more than the surface of printmaking as you use innovative drawing methods to create an inspired print. This one-day workshop focuses on the intaglio technique of drypoint and draws from the special exhibition Artists and Amateurs: Etching in Eighteenth-Century France. During this class, master printmaker Deborah Chaney works with you to create a composition and takes you through the steps of transferring, etching, inking, and printing with a copper plate and printing press.

This workshop meets in the Met's galleries and studios. Participants must be 18 or older. All levels welcome. Space is limited. Purchase tickets below or at the Great Hall box office. Registration ends at noon on the Tuesday before the first day of the course. For more information, email studioprograms@metmuseum.org or call 212-570-3961 to receive information about student pricing.

This program is made possible by The Georges Lurcy Charitable and Educational Trust.
