5 Session Altered Book Project
5 Session Altered Book Project meets September 10, September 17, September 24, October 1 and October 8 from 6:30 - 9:30 pm.
This course is an introduction to various techniques of book alteration that will amount to a the creation of an altered book art project. We will be exploring different drawing, painting, collage, mixed media, and printing techniques. Focusing on a different set of tools and media each week, we will address the formal and conceptual potential of a book art project. Students are welcome to come to the course with an objective project in mind, or are welcome to just explore the different creative practices each week.
Materials to bring:
Used books and art materials will be provided. Students are welcome to bring their own book or additional supplies if desired.
