Despite the lockdown, decreed right after the new year, our work with the scholarship holders was initiated online. Each scholarship holder received a small kit with all the tools necessary for them to start their work in drypoint. Sessions were held online, collectively, and their work was followed up through sharing photos on our whatsapp group.

Once lockdown was eased, we were able to receive them one by one in order to proceed with the works and also to pull some state prints in order for them to understand how their work was evolving. More recently, with the complete lift of the lockdown, in the beginning of March, we were able to hold regular sessions in the studio and their work in drypoint has evolved as shown on the samples below.

With the start of a new month, they had an introduction to etching (aqua-forte) as they will start working with the technique. They are also starting to work on a collective print dialogue (we would love to share the details at a later date)!
