Calcographic engraving course
On the occasion of the 15th Anniversary
Course for adults 15 and 16 Nov. 2018
Chalcography or intaglio printing or stamping is a printing technique in which the images are the result of the stamping, by means of a press or press, of a sheet or metal sheet in which incisions have been made to contain the ink that is will fix the paper. The technique originally designated only engravings made in copper, and by extension began to be used for engravings on all metals. The rooms of the temporary exhibition The south of Picasso. Andalusian references , in which works by Picasso or Goya will be seen, will be the starting point of this course in which different techniques of intaglio engraving will be explored.
Intended for adult audiences, no previous artistic knowledge is required and lasts for two sessions. In them, the visit to the rooms of the temporary exhibition will alternate with the practical work in the workshop. In each session a different chalcographic technique will be addressed, so the first day will apply the dry point, a direct technique, the plate is attacked directly with punches, burnishers, etc … In the second day, an indirect technique will be studied, the etching, where the plate is immersed in an acid that acts as a mordant of the metal.
The price (€ 50) includes visits to the Museum and all materials. Limited places.
2019 A man goes to the local Local Council to apply for a job. The interviewer asks him, "Have you been in the armed services?" "Yes," he says, "I was in Bosnia for three years." The interviewer says, "That will give you extra points toward employment." He then asks, "Are you disabled in any way?" The guy says "Yes 100%... a mortar round exploded near me and blew my testicles off." The interviewer tells the guy, "OK. I can hire you right now. The hours are from 8:00 AM. to 4:00 PM. You can start tomorrow. Come in at 10:00 AM." The guy is puzzled and says, "If the hours are from 8:00am to 4:00pm then why do you want me to come in at 10:00am?" "This is a council job," the interviewer replies, "for the first two hours we sit around scratching our balls.......no point in you coming in for that."
