In Italian, Pronto means “Ready.” In this one-day workshop with Pronto Plate Printmaking, get ready to hop into active drawing and printing with these easy to prepare and print lithographic plates. These polyester printing plates are inexpensive, thin enough to cut and easy to use. Drawing and painting directly on the plates with a variety of tools and materials—markers, India ink, atomizers, quill pens, and more—you’ll learn the basic technique of rolling up the plates and printing your images with an etching press. We’ll also add a bit of color with Akua inks and pastels worked directly into the plates themselves. Get ready for an exciting day of perky pronto printing with proficiency!
