Kathryn Klauber presents the Saturday, January 14 program with a counterproof demonstration and talk. Counterproof is a technique that produces the finest quality copperplate printing.
Art historian, presenter and studio artist,Â Kathryn combines a global knowledge of art history with the eye of an artist. She is an instructor of art and teaches art history at the Rice Glasscock School.
Kathryn holds a MEd in Art Education with a specialization in Art Museum Studies from the University of Houston and a BFA in Art Education at the University of Texas, Austin.
Historically, counterproof was reserved for an artistâ€™s wealthiest or most influential patrons. After the fresh print is pulled, another piece of paper is immediately placed across its surface. This results in a print with delicate lines, oriented to the same direction as the original drawing or watercolor and with the final image lacking the beveled impression left by a plate edge.
