Veo, Veo at Calcografía Nacional
Calcografía Nacional, Real Academia de Bellas Artes de San Fernando. Calle de Alcalá, 13. Madrid
The Calcografía Nacional, dependent on the Real Academia de Bellas Artes de San Fernando, was created in 1789 with the aim of promoting the art of intaglio engraving, and its research and teaching. The institution currently maintains an important collection of plates and prints from the sixteenth century, and has a printing workshop.
Traditionally reserved for a specialized audience, the Calcografía hosts for the first time a project to teach the art of printmaking to public school children thanks to the "Veo, Veo" projects and with the collaboration of elmonodelatinta in conducting the workshops.
Making use of the temporary exhibition program of the institution, hablarenarte: designs a special tour for each exhibition offering new and different printing techniques and processes during the visit and concluding with the workshop where the participants can engrave and print on acetate.
As a complement to the workshop and guided tour program hablarenarte: publishes two booklets on the art of printmaking that distributed free of charge to all attendees.
