Matthew will lead a workshop focusing on the intersections of analog and digital processes, New Approaches to Lithography. During this workshop, Matthew will lead students in exploring the photo lithography process combined with image-making techniques using equipment in the Digital Fabrication Lab at Anderson Ranch Arts Center. Students will learn photo lithography print processes as well as image-making techniques using a variety of fabrication machinesAnalog and digital applications of photolithography are presented. Devices such as laser cutters, digital plotters and inkjet printers are used for image development. Experimentation and a variety of approaches are encouraged. Students will discover new and inventive ways of making images for the lithography process not easily achieved by hand. Those who are more digitally-focused will have the opportunity to explore a more traditional and tactile printmaking process.
