This class is an introduction to the process of lithography through the use of polyester plates. This technique is a simplified version of lithography that enables artists to create lithographs without having to master an acid etch.
A great introduction to both lithography and digital type setting, this class will explore how to blend language and image through the process of pronto plate printing. Students can combine hand drawing with digital text, photos, and designs. Pronto plate litho is wonderful way to enjoy the freedom of layering in with planographic printing at a fraction of the cost and toxicity of more traditional methods.
Please note that class fees cover tuition as well as many consumable studio supplies and most materials that students will use throughout the class or workshop. Please see student material list for additional supplies.
