This fast-paced course is designed for both beginners and advanced artists, (and will be offered in a two-week sequence). Week one focuses on traditional methods with stone lithography, and week two introduces students to photomechanical lithography using both hand-drawn and digital processes. Students are encouraged to investigate personal directions in their work as they explore lithographic possibilities through editions and unique variants. Emphasis will be placed on both conceptual and technical development, and additional demonstrations will be added based on the specific interests and needs of the participants. Class consists of demonstrations, presentations, work time, discussions, and critiques. Historical and contemporary lithographic examples will be presented in order to clarify the relationships between idea, context, material, and process.
