Pronto Plate Lithography *In-Person*

Lithography made easy without the use of strong acids or heavy stones. Pronto litho is fast and requires little processing before you are inking up the plate, sponging, and running your first couple proofs. This course will introduce students to the chemistry and fast passed printing style that is lithography. Students will work on developing images using multiple plates and layering colors. We will work on color layering, image/plate development, and easy ways to register your prints perfectly right on the pronto itself. Instructor Louis Meola

Louis Meola

Louis Meola is a Boston local who received a BFA in printmaking from Emmanuel College and an MFA from SMFA at Tufts University. An avid printmaker who will "literally print anything", Louis has made prints with skateboards, trash, broken press beds, dirty faculty napkins, crab shells, and rusty copper. In his own words, "I prefer the messy side of printmaking, and no I am not referring to crooked margins and dirty edges, I'm talking about noise, information, plate tone, and experimental approaches.”
