Photo Lithography: The Captured Image

Photo lithography is a process by which images are photographically transferred to an aluminum plate and printed by hand. While its first uses were commercial, today it is a widely used approach for printmaking with the ability to translate photographic images. This workshop will explore many versatile approaches to photo lithography. We’ll learn to execute a photo lithograph using drawing, photography, and experimental approaches. This is a workshop for creators who love to draw, work photographically, or are looking for new approaches to image-making using found objects and textures. We’ll also cover multiple-layer color printing. All levels. Print studio.
