ART 325 - Lithography


This course is an introduction to lithography, which is a planographic printmaking medium based on one simple principle “the antipathy of oil and water. Though the course will offer an historical overview of stone and plate lithographic techniques, students will experiment with more environmentally friendly and less toxic contemporary lithographic techniques, creating prints both in black and white and color. At the conclusion of the course, students will have completed an editioned portfolio of works housed in a hand-constructed folio. Technical aspects of printing include color mixing and transparency, registration, and edition printing for class portfolio projects. Students will explore their creative process, including the discipline of keeping a sketchbook, as they develop and refine concepts and composition in projects that emphasize personal imagery and narratives.
