Workshop for adults

INTAGLIO ENGRAVING COURSE

On the ocassion of 'Olga Picasso'


04 & 05 Apr. 2019

Museo Picasso Málaga has organized an intaglio engraving course for adults in which they can learn dry point and etching techniques. The participants will visit the museum’s permanent Collection and the Olga Picasso temporary exhibition, then, in the workshop area, they will experiment with print techniques, led by a teacher.

Engraving covers a series of graphic techniques whose common feature is that the images are created from incisions or carvings that the engraver makes on a wooden or metal matrix. Intaglio printmaking comprises the widest range of techniques, which is why it the one most commonly used by artists. The course will look at dry point and etching, in which a sharp needle is used to work on the metal plate or matrix. From Dürer to Rembrandt and from Goya to Picasso, many great artists have used these techniques, updating them and making use of their numerous possibilities.

The two-session workshop is designed for adults. Limited number of places available!

Dates: Thursday 4th and Friday 5th April.
This course is also available in Spanish next 28th and Friday 29th March. 

Time: 5.00pm to 7.30pm

Price: 50 €. Includes the museum visit and all materials.
