The purpose of the diploma thesis is the presentation of one of the printmaking techniques of the intaglio printing, etching. There will be presented processes of preparation and implementation techniques, analysis of the appropriateness and complexity of techniques for students in elementary school and a short presentation of my own works created in that technique.
In the professional-theoretical part I will explore one of the techniques that I was most attracted and impressed - etching. In addition to etchings I will also present other intaglio printing (aquatint, reservage, vernis-mou). I will describe the processes of preparing zinc plates (from grinding, polishing, coating, applying the ground, drawing, etching) up to the preparation of printing the plate (color application, preparation of graphic sheet, taking the print).
The practical part of the diploma thesis will be devoted to the presentation of my own prints in the technique of etching and other techniques.
In the art-pedagogical part of the diploma thesis, I will conceive preparation of the material and work space for the implementation of lessons (list of materials, tools and necessary equipment to carry out the work itself and the spatial arrangement of individual workstations). In addition, I will develop teaching preparation for lesson in printmaking, etching technique in an elementary school.
