This workshop offers both introductory and advanced level techniques in the medium of stone lithography. Those enrolled in this course can expect to be exposed to traditional and contemporary applications. We will explore dry and liquid materials, representational and abstract approaches using drawing and painterly methods as well as additive and reductive processes. Prior experience welcome but not necessary.
