If you love drawing and color, you’ll love photolithography. Printing on aluminum plates, you’ll learn the basics of printing a photolithograph with rich transparent and/or opaque layers of ink. Beginning with monotypes and moving into drawing on acetate/mylar, you’ll learn to mix ink, registration, and safe clean up. This class will give you the tools to print a multi-color image and allows you to concentrate on your art/imagery. We’ll also discuss computer imagery that can be printed on an inkjet printer and transferred to a photo plate and tearing paper for an edition.
