Photolithography for beginners introduces the possibilities and ease of this lithographic process to make prints from a drawing or cut outs on a transparency. Photolithography is an aluminum plate that is covered with a photosensitive emulsion, and a positive is placed in contact with the plate and exposed to ultraviolet light. After development the plate is rolled up with ink and printed on a lithography press on fine art paper. 

Please come with a sketch that may be realized with an aesthetic of a pencil drawing or ink wash as we will draw with stabilo pencils, grease crayons, and tusche. In this workshop students will create a two color print using a key image with a color run.  Plate preparation, registration, black and colored inks will be covered; as well as additional hand coloring with techniques using the press (monotype/stencil/pochoir). Emphasis will be placed on experimentation and the use of the multiple to create individualized imagery.  Bring brushes, and colored pencils/watercolor for additional color exploration. Final Print: 11” x 15”

Participants will bring drawings for a second print to expose and edition the following weekend. Participants are encouraged to explore drawing materials for exposing matrices, and different papers. Please come with a few sketches and be ready to experiment. Bring brushes, x-acto knives, and possible materials for exposure investigation. Final Print: 15” x 20”

Polyester Plate Lithography | Jennifer Scheuer

Polyester Plate Lithography | Jennifer Scheuer

Sat, Apr 9, 10am - 2:30pm

$68 non-associates / $57 associates ($30 for materials)

The polyester lithography plate is a simple small-run printmaking technique that can be used for artists' editioning, monoprinting, or used in the classroom appealing to a range of skill from elementary to post secondary education. A drawing is completed on the plate using markers, pens, ink, or a laser printer. The polyester paper is then wet, inked, and printed (either on a lithography press, etching press or by hand!) Additions and deletions may be made to the printing matrix and creating multiple color prints is simple due to the transparent nature of the plate. The process is non-toxic, using toothpaste as chemistry.
