What you'll learn in this printing class:

In this class, students will learn the processes and techniques of drawing on and printing from stones. CPC is one of the few places in Chicago where students have access to traditional lithographic limestones and is an exceptional studio to learn the lithography process. In this ten-week course, students will learn how to translate their images to stones and print editions of lithographs. 

Through demonstrations and one-on-one instruction, students will learn how to use traditional and alternative drawing materials, etch their drawings, and use the printing press. Intermediate students can learn methods like aluminum or polymer plates, and color printing. 

Material list provided two weeks prior to first class.
