What can we do when one page isn’t enough for a work of art? How do we define book art and what possibilities does this creative process present? This class will focus on creating one-of-a-kind artist books. Students will have a chance to create one or multiple books using collected mementos such as ticket stubs, hand-written notes, scraps of wrapping paper or old photographs as well as original works on paper. They will be introduced to simple bookbinding techniques and different book forms. We will consider the importance of page sequence and how pairing certain works together can alter how we experience the individual pieces. Students will repurpose old drawings and collages and use text, images, and patterns from vintage magazines to create new artworks, poems, and stories. Students will see how a seemingly random collection of papers can come together to tell a personal story. There are no limits as to what students can create! Materials will be provided, but students are also encouraged to collect materials they would like to include.

This program is limited to eight participants. Social distancing measures will be implemented in the gallery space and students and staff will be required to wear masks during the class. Each student will be provided with their own set of materials that will not be shared amongst the group. Shared facilities (sinks and bathrooms) will be cleaned and sanitized before and after each class. We continue to monitor the Covid-19 rates in the county and will adhere to all guidelines and imposed restrictions. If indoor gathering is prohibited prior to, or during this program, the class will move to a virtual platform.
