Ever wondered how prints are created from drawing on a stone? If so, then this class is for you! Invented in the late 18th century, lithography has allowed artists of any aesthetic tendency to achieve marks true to him or herself. From loose and gestural to nely rendered images, lithography continues to be a versatile form of printmaking today. In this class students will learn the fundamentals of stone lithography: preparing a stone, drawing materials and options, processing, press set-up, registration, color, and printing, as well as other helpful tips and tricks. Artists new to lithography or those wanting to brush up on their skills are encouraged to register. Cost includes most materials for the course. Please bring ideas or sketches for imagery with you to help you get the most out of this six week course.

She earned 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 in Collaborative Lithography at Tamarind Institute.
