Making multiples with a vast range of plausible solutions entices young artists to explore new expressive directions. The special processes of printmaking enable them to see their work translated into exciting two-dimensional forms. These processes also provide opportunities for discovering multiple solutions to problems, enabling the student to construct a solid visual foundation.

Electro-etching is the safe removal of metal from the exposed plate surface. Building on the research of Nik Semenoff, Cedric Green, and Stanley William Hayter, he discussed the possibilities of various traditional and contemporary intaglio techniques including, conventional and acrylic grounds, open-bite, aquatint, and digital applications.
