Lithography is the most direct form of printmaking. The immediacy of the artist’s hand is kept throughout the process. A broad range of effects can be achieved from fine line drawing to transparent washes of deep rich areas of color. The course covers the basic techniques of hand-drawn aluminum plates, photolithographic plates, and printing in black-and-white and color. Both beginning and experienced printmakers will gain a greater understanding of the unique properties of lithography. The materials fee includes inks, Mylar, and transfer paper.
