[BKARTS] solar plate etching class

I am forwarding this annoouncement on behalf of a friend who is not a list

Dan Welden, who developed solarplate printmaking, will be teaching a
workshop on Sunday, November 3, from 9:30 til 5 pm at Karen Fitzgerald's
studio in Long Island City at 31-29 12th Street, 3rd Floor.
The cost for the 1-day workshop will be $100 (plus tax).
Solarplate etching is a recent alternative etching process that uses
sunlight and water instead of the traditional acids and grounds.  Developed
by master printmaker, Dan Welden this innovative approach is spontaneous and
easy, yet produces results which have attained the level of professionalism
by several artists to be accepted by the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
Since the Solarplate is a light sensitized polymer, it accepts all kinds of
images. Artists may create with various forms of drawings and paintings on
acetate, photocopy or computer printouts on transparent film, with
photographs as positive transparencies, or they may consider painting
directly on the plate. Once the plates are prepared and developed, they are
ideal for editioning. Numbers of impressions may vary according to the
artwork and the person printing.

Those interested in participating please contact Sarah Hauser, who is
coordinating the workshop, at Cucamongie@aol.com or at (212) 967-7711 X3083
for further information, materials list, and to sign up for the class.
