Etching Workshop | Feb. 12 – 13 | Carter Scaggs

The Vision by Carter Scaggs
Etching with Carter Scaggs
Saturday, February 12 at 9:30 am - Sunday, February 13 at 5:00pm

Workshop Description:
We will explore relatively new breakthroughs and technological advancements in the art of etching. Traditional techniques such as aquatint, soft ground, hard ground, mock mezzotint, and lift ground have been updated and enhanced via the use of water-based, acrylic resist methodologies. In short, the visual power of these etching techniques has been retained, but the toxic, chemical hazards have been completely removed. Each participant will have the opportunity to produce beautiful etchings using these contemporary methods.

Carter Scaggs is current Art Department Chair at Collin County Community College and has been teaching at Collin College since 1993. He teaches Design I, Life Drawing I & II, Life Drawing Portfolio, Printmaking I & II, and Printmaking Portfolio.

The intaglio and linocut printmaking processes and drawing are Professor Scaggs' preferred media, and he has shown his work in galleries and competitions nationally. Mr. Scaggs received his B.F.A in Printmaking from the University of North Texas and his M.F.A. in Printmaking from Indiana University.

As a second-generation artist/teacher, Mr. Scaggs has been involved in art education from an early age. His philosophy of teaching is based on what he remembers of his best teachers. They shared their knowledge, loved their craft and sought to help each student be successful.

Workshop limited to 10 participants. $100 for current UNT students, $125 for UNT Alumni & UNT Faculty/Staff, $125 for Sr. Citizens, $150 for Artists.
