Pull lithograph prints from plates made from paper! The ease and economy of photocopies and laserprints as plates make interesting lithographs that have a distinct look. Unique textures and fine lines can be achieved with this non-toxic technique. You can even draw and paint washes directly on the plates before printing. You will pull several prints and also be shown how to print in multiple colors. Some printing experience would be helpful but is not required. A 5-item supply list will be emailed one week before the start of class.
