This contemporary process allows the artist to work with photosensitive materials to create a printable lithographic plate. Both hand drawn and photographic imagery can be used for image making. Developing transparencies, exposing and developing the plate, and how to print will be covered. These prints can be printed on lithography or etching presses.
