Intaglio Printmaking at Scuola Internazionale di Grafica

The Intaglio Printmaking Course is open to beginners as well as to advanced students

 

An ancient printmaking method, Intaglio, has always been an innovative medium. It offers -in contemporary art’s language- innumerable means of expression, from rigorous figurative to free abstraction. The artist-engraver has always experimented with supports, tools, varnishes, creating plates that can imprint meaningful marks and contrasts on paper.

 

The Intaglio Course at the Scuola Internazionale di Grafica offers its participants the unique opportunity to work side-by-side with Internationally established, as well as emerging artists.

 

Beginners receive support, inspiration and  knowledge. Working alongside artists who are already experienced in the printmaking processes, will likewise improve their skills thanks to the exchange with the International artists in residence at the Scuola.

 

Among the International printmakers who have worked at the Scuola are Stanley Hayter, Henri Goetz, Michael Mazur, Jorg Schmeisser, Keith Achepohl, Clare Romano and many more.
