This course is an introduction to lithographic processes. Students will start by processing and printing images from limestone and end the semester by exploring the possibilities of making positive films to expose modern lithographic plates. This studio class is structured around a number of projects each one ending with a group critique. Students should find the parameters of these assignments broad enough to allow for customization to their own artistic interests and are expected to bring additional content to their work from outside the classroom. At the end of the term, students will have the skills and visual vocabulary to continue making lithographs.
Registration for this course will happen during office hours, beginning on Thursday, May 18 from 10:30am – 11:45am, and continue on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10:30am – 11:45am in VAPA D101.
