Intro to Intaglio / Drypoint Printmaking *In-Person*

Intaglio printing means printing ink from the incised marks in a plate or matrix. This is a course for beginning students seeking thorough exposure to intaglio printmaking without any of the nasty chemicals. We will give special attention to a broad array of intaglio applications: drypoint, found objects, collage, and monoprint techniques. The intaglio line is like no other in the sense that it becomes embedded in the fibers of the soaked paper. The end result is a deep, rich, and unique mark. Instructor: Louis Meola

Louis Meola

Louis Meola is a Boston local who received a BFA in printmaking from Emmanuel College and an MFA from SMFA at Tufts University. An avid printmaker who will "literally print anything", Louis has made prints with skateboards, trash, broken press beds, dirty faculty napkins, crab shells, and rusty copper. In his own words, "I prefer the messy side of printmaking, and no I am not referring to crooked margins and dirty edges, I'm talking about noise, information, plate tone, and experimental approaches.”
