There is a wealth of printed material on intaglio printmaking techniques and history, but there is relatively little printed material or work directed towards the inclusion of intaglio printmaking in the secondary school art curriculum. It is my basic assertion in this thesis that intaglio printmaking can be taught with success at the secondary level. The thesis consists of three chapters. The first chapter is concerned with the purpose, value, and application of intaglio printmaking in a secondary school art program. The second chapter identifies the materials, the cost of materials, and the sources of supply. Chapter three deals with the organization of materials in the classroom. Photographs of intaglio prints comprise the visual aspect of the thesis and supplement the text in some instances. I have supplemented the photographs of my own work with original prints by high school students, which should give some idea of the student's competence. Photographs of some of the paintings and drawings that I completed during the Master of Science inTeaching program are in the appendix. This will provide a record or my work for the art department and is intended as a supplement to the thesis.
