I learned one thing on the Oak Cliff Visual Speed Bump Tour this weekend and that’s to start early and pace yourself. Fifteen artists invited us into their studios to see how they create art and each host on the tour could not have been nicer.

Last November I told you about my experience learning how to print drypoint with instructor Peter Ligon at Southern Methodist University (You Can’t Make Art without Getting Your Hands Dirty). This time I will impart my experience learning acid etching and aquatint. Etching and aquatint were once again taught by Peter Ligon at SMU. The only difference was the day of the week and a few of the regular students. I don’t think two sessions makes me a regular yet, but who knows.
I recently completed Printmaking, a continuing education course at Southern Methodist University, with artist and instructor Peter Ligon. My goal was to broaden my printmaking repertoire to include the use of an actual fine art etch press. Along the way I also learned drypoint, monotype and chine colle.
