While the new resurgence of interest in botanical art concentrates on watercolor, artists should know that botanical art started with wood block and etching prints. Botanical Prints date back to the late 15th century, and by the 16th century became the medium of choice for the great flower painters. This course is designed for the botanical illustrator and will cover a range of introductory techniques in etching, relief, and lithographic print processes. It will enable the student to make reproductions of his/her work in both traditional and experimental printmaking, while exploring the rich possibilities inherent in these media. The prerequisite for the course is Botanical Drawing or Botany for Illustrators.
