Interested in creating lithographs but have an aversion to stone graining or lengthy multi-step processing? This polyester plate workshop is perfect for you! Polyester plates or Pronto plates are a quick and inexpensive way to print hand drawn and/or digital images with absolutely no harsh chemical processing. Over the course of the weekend, you will learn how to draw onto polyester plates, register multiple layers if desired, prepare ink for printing, and of course, print! New and seasoned printmakers are welcome. Cost includes ink, supplies and some printing paper. Please bring ideas for imagery.

She holds a BS in Studio Art from Skidmore College, an MFA in 2-D Fine Art with a focus in Printmaking from Massachusetts College of Art and Design, and has completed the Professional Training Program at Tamarind Institute.
