The Materials and Techniques of Drawings and Prints

A Met Museum resource perfect for print education: "Essential to understanding a work of art on paper is an appreciation of how it was made. Did the artist choose to draw in red chalk, gouache, or with pen and ink? Was their print created through woodcut, etching, or lithography? And how did those critical choices affect the final appearance of the work of art?"
