Print Summer Session 5
July 19 – August 4, 2020
Andrew Polk & Kathryn Polk
Stone Lithography

Stone lithography, first developed by Alois Senefelder in 1796, continues to captivate artists today. Join two different types of lithographers as they demonstrate techniques and philosophies for working on and printing from the amazing Bavarian limestone. Students will learn the processes of drawing on the stone, chemically processing (etching) the image, proofing, and printing a final edition. Imaging approaches will include crayon drawing, tusche wash techniques, transfers, and experimental methods. We’ll have a special demonstration on making litho crayons. All levels. Code 05X
