Wild at Art - Etching Scientific Illustration - Teen Workshop
March 6, 2016
Before photographs, sharing new discoveries in nature meant relying on artists to bring samples to life. Scientific illustrators used plate etching, a technique of carving into metal to create intricate drawings that could be reproduced over and over again. In this one-day workshop, students will study print examples from our museum collection, then sketch, etch, and print their own illustrations based on specimens from the collection. Get a close look at some of the exciting examples of the natural world while creating your own piece to take home. Selected pieces may be chosen to be put on display in the museum!
Applications can be found here.
