$120 (by check payment)


In this one-day intensive workshop, attendees will be introduced to the accessible and versatile process of pronto plate printmaking. Pronto plate printmaking is a quick lithographic method that doesn’t require chemicals, acids, or expensive materials. Pronto plates can either be drawn on directly with sharpies or ballpoint pens, hand painted with floor wax, or run through a laser printer or Xerox copier. The final results have the potential to be colorful, immediate, densely layered, and experimental, and to demonstrate a mix of photographic, digital, gestural, and painterly marks. Along with photographs, crayons, markers, pencils and ink wash can also be used.

Lab fee of $20 (paid to the teacher in class) covers supplies plus 2 full sheets of BFK paper, per student. Extra paper will be available for purchase, or bring your own.
