Lithography

Lithography was invented 200 years ago by Senefelder as a means of printing his own manuscripts.

What The Course is About:

Lithography was invented 200 years ago by Senefelder as a means of printing his own manuscripts. He worked out that he could draw on Bavarian limestone and then, after careful processing of the stone, he could print the drawing. While most modern lithography uses metal plates, this course teaches students how to use the more traditional and perhaps superior method of stone lithography. Students will learn the process involved in drawing on the stones and printing from them. They will also learn the history of the art of lithography from Senefelder to the present day.

Materials Required:

For the first class please bring a basic selection of drawing materials and a notebook

Previous Experience:

All Levels

End of course:

Students will learn the process involved in drawing on the stones and printing from them. They will also learn the history of the art of lithography from Senefelder to the present day.We will create lithographs like Degas, Renoir and Toulouse Lautrec did in the nineteenth century. Picasso and Chagall continued the tradition into the 20th century, as lithography is a great medium for reproducing drawing and multi-coloured prints
