TAM Docents: A couple of notes

Hello Docents-

Just a reminder that you have December off from trainings – enjoy whatever free time you can squeeze out of the month! We will resume trainings in January and I am working hard to get those dates finalized so that you can get them on your calendars. I may have several that will be up in the air as it is difficult for Rock to confirm when he will be available this far out. I will get the calendar to you this month one way or the other.

Also, below are some book recommendations sent by Elizabeth for those who would like to learn a bit more about printmaking.

Thank you for all that you do for Tacoma Art Museum!

But, here are a couple of titles on printmaking that I found helpful:


"Printmaking for Beginners" by Jane Stobart (6" x 9" size, similar to the one we had for Japanese blockprints). Has good step-by-step explanations on the techniques, with illustrations.


"Practical Printmaking" Complete guide to the latest tecniques, tools and materials is edited by Louise Woods (Chartwell Books, Inc) This one has excellent photographs of the process.


I got both of these from the Timberland Library system, but should be available in Tacoma.
