During this workshop, participants will learn foundational techniques of stone lithography. Throughout the workshop, participants will experiment with mark making, drawing, and printing while they learn how to add and delete imagery. Through deletion and addition, artists will be encouraged to embrace chance, variation, and experimentation as they use the lithographic process to develop their ideas and evolve imagery. By the end of the workshop, artists will have multiple prints and variations.
