This workshop introduces photolithography as a tool for both drawing and multiple-plate printing. Students will print a two-plate photolithograph, a drawing layer printed over a rainbow roll (blend of multiple colors) background. The first session begins with image preparation on transparency film, then moves through the process of registering, exposing, developing, then processing plates. We end the first session mixing and modifying color litho ink for the rainbow roll. The second session is an intensive printing session, starting with rainbow rolls in the morning, followed by the second drawing plate in the afternoon.
Level: Intermediate – No prior lithography experience is required, however, intermediate printmaking experience is recommended. Not recommended for those new to printmaking.
Registration closes June 15, 2022. Material fees are included with your registration, though a list of additional items needed to be gathered/purchased will be sent with your confirmation.
