From drawing to printing

Print a picture with cola, oil, water and a wooden spoon? Yes, you can! You will learn about a lithographic process that is much simpler than it sounds.

After looking at examples of Käthe Kollwitz’s paintings in the museum, you will go out into the castle park. Here you observe people, situations and emotions and capture them on paper with graphite. Like the artist in the past, you draw freely, portray and collect textures. From your collection, you then develop your own motifs that you want to use for your printmaking.

And now comes the recipe: Cola is not there to drink, but to etch. Be curious to see what happens next with this simplified lithography technique that uses only things from the kitchen. Experimentation is the order of the day and with fun, a little patience and creativity, your own cola litho artworks will emerge.
