The quality of an original lithograph depends on many different artisitic and technical factors, from the personality of the artist to the use of the expressive qualities of the materials, from the compact strucure of the calcium carbonate stone to the grain of the aluminium or zinc plate, from the soft touch of the crayon to the amount of acid or gum arabic, from the particular characteristics of the inks to the pressure of the press.
In this 4 classes workshop the participants will gradually get acquainted with the various materials and techniques of lithography. Each participant will realize lithographic works while at the same time learning the various technical solutions.
