Create your original Art print

The ancient art of engraving, which had its greatest splendor and diffusion in Venice, will have no more secrets! For those who want a unique experience in the ancient world of craftsmanship, I organize individual courses (one or at most two people) to explain and put into practice the basic techniques of engraving. Participants will have the opportunity to create a real art print made by them (on their original idea or a drawing of their own) and take it home. An experience that surely will not be able to forget - indeed, they will be able to hang it in their home! The course includes the incision with the drypoint technique on plexiglas or drypoint on zinc. I will follow you in the choice of subjects, in the preparation of the drawings and during all the processing phases, from the initial study to the processing of the slab up to the final prints.
