Mariel's workshop

Mariel, my wonderful printmaking professor at Kendall (KCAD) held a workshop in litho this weekend. I spent all of yesterday printing a really awful print, but learning and remembering tons about lithography. It was kind of a refresher course, and Mariel is in such a state of discovery in litho, that there was a sense of exploration and problem solving in the workshop.
I follow the blog of Alicia Wierschke, a classmate of mine. Alicia was at the workshop, too, and provided excellent advice on procedures. She's a good teacher. Her blog is called Art of Alicia Wierschke. She is quite faithful about documenting her art life (which is considerable, since she is a full time MFA grad student in printmaking.
This workshop was the most fun I've had all semester.
