*REGISTRATION CLOSED* Adult Studio: No Stone Lithography with Ani Volkan
This one-day workshop is a great way to delve into the planographic process known as lithography! Students will learn about the history of lithography, the basics of the process, and what materials to use. Students will create their grease loving imagery, process their plates, and create prints from gesture drawings to photo based reproductions. This class is great for beginners and seasoned printers alike as it uses a polymer plate alternative to the traditional stone process.
The Asheville Art Museum will award two BIPOC scholarships for the Adult Studio. To apply, click here.
