Tintype was a photographic technique invented in the mid 19th century and was the first true form of “instant” photography. It was the technique of choice for photographers who set up mobile studios at carnivals and other live events because these photos had to be shot, developed and handed to the customer within 15 minutes.
In this workshop, students will explore the art and technique of shooting Tintypes, and see the world rendered in an aesthetic that is unparalleled by any other forms of photography.
Students will bring home at least 2 tintype plates that they have shot and developed themselves.

Etching is a traditional printmaking process in which lines or marks are physically bitten into a piece of metal (often copper) using an acid. This technique dates back to the sixteenth century and has been widely used by artists specializing in various mediums to create multiples of one image.
This course offers beginner, intermediate and advanced levels to learn the different intricacies of the traditional printing method of etching. The beginner level is suited for students who have never explored the medium. The intermediate level covers aquatint and advanced offers advanced etching techniques such as tusche wash and alcohol toner wash.
