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.

ANDREW MURDOCH, originally from the Northeast,received his BA from Bennington College in 2008 and most recently his MFA from Texas A&M University: Corpus Christi. Primarily a printmaker, Murdoch works in a variety of mediums ranging from welded steel to porcelain casting slip. Much of his works are driven by a fascination with the archaic and the bizarre, including ancient texts, outdated film formats, and the space between waking and dreaming.Murdoch is currently working with various N.E.A. Grant artists at the CCP, aiding in the creation of imagery and printing editions in both intaglio and lithographic mediums.
