Aluminum-Plate lithography is a variation on traditional stone lithography. Some advantages of the aluminum plate are the expedience of image processing, the lighter weight of the matrix, and the ability to print on either an etching press or a lithography press. Participants will produce 1-3 images over the three-day workshop, able to be pulled in small editions. In this workshop, a variety of drawing methods and materials will be covered.

Grant artists at the CCP, aiding in the creation of imagery and printing editions in both intaglio and lithographic mediums.
