Lithography was invented 200 years ago by Senefelder as a means of printing his own manuscripts. He worked out that he could draw on Bavarian limestone and then, after careful processing of the stone, he could print the drawing.

What the course is about

We create lithographs like Degas, Renoir and Toulouse Lautrec did in the nineteenth century. Picasso and Chagall continued the tradition into the 20th century, as lithography is a great medium for reproducing drawing and multi-coloured prints.

Assessments, tests, exams

Students will learn the process involved in drawing on the stones and printing from them. They will also learn the history of the art of lithography from Senefelder to the present day.
