This class will be offered in a two-week sequence and give the beginner and/or more advanced artist the chance to learn the traditional lithographic technique in week one. Week two we will introduce the photo plate using analog methods or digitally manipulated photo positives. Emphasis will be placed on understanding how to make a lithograph both in editions and as unique variants. Demonstrations will be given for the preparation of matrices, color mixing and modifying inks as necessary, as well as more advanced drawing techniques as required by participants’ needs and interests. Historical examples from the collection of The Art Institute of Chicago will be discussed in presentations aimed at enhancing participants’ aesthetic point of view.
