Pronto Plate Lithography

Pronto Plate Lithography

Date: Thursday, April 24 Time: 5:00pm – 9:00pm

This planographic printmaking technique uses the same process of water and oil resists as stone lithography to edition hand drawn or photographic imagery! Plastic plates are used instead of heavy limestone, making this process lighter and easier than ever before! Printmakers in this class will be amazed by the process as they pull their artwork from the press, crisp and clear as their very own drawings! Instructor: Corey Smith
