Today we will look at examples of copies made by artist and discuss how they made them. We will also learn how to etch a printing plate and make our own copies just like an artist. Teacher will model how to plan an idea and transfer idea to printing plate. Next the teacher will model how to ink the plate and make a copy.
 Students will plan in their sketchbook ideas for a print. Next students will select the best idea and transfer it to a printing plate by attaching the sketch on top of the plate and tracing over sketch with pencil.
