This introductory-level course will demonstrate how quickly Polyester Plate Lithography can be learned and how easily it can be utilized to make prints. Polyester plate lithography involves minimal processing compared to other printmaking techniques and printing from the plate itself is straightforward. The emphasis in this course will be on hand-drawn rather than digitally produced imagery, which will allow for a greater focus on printing.
