Polyester Plate Lithography with Visiting Artist Charles Cohan #1151

This workshop will explore the intersection of 19th century lithographic techniques with 21st century materials and practices through the use of polyester lithography plates. The capacity of this inexpensive printing matrix is a relatively recent addition to the printmaking field, and thus the applications are innovative and provide yet another visual expansion of contemporary printmaking. This class explores a process that bridges aspects of both the hand drawn and the photographically generated image. Prerequisite: prior printmaking experience
