The purpose of this study was to investigate as many of the graphic techniques as time, materials, and equipment would permit. The technical aspect of each process was first learned and then attention was given to developing the possible limitations and advantages of each. In some areas, such as in drypoint, only enough work was done to learn the process. However, in the areas of woodcuts and serigraphy, much more time was spent and the investigation was conducted with some depth. Techniques which were studied include woodcuts, serigraphy, line drawings, hard and soft ground etchings on zinc, aluminum and copper, aquatint, engraving, and stone lithography. The discussion of each technique is listed in this paper in the order in which it was explored.
