This workshop promotes the artist's book as a safe space for personal expression and self-discovery. Draw upon your personal histories to develop meaningful content and propel new creations. Spontaneity, improvisation, and experimentation will be central to our journey. Together, we will explore strategies to get over the (sometimes) daunting hurdle of just getting started. Utilizing basic bookbinding techniques, construct your own personalized book and learn a variety of approaches to fill it with personal narratives and the unexpected. While our books will certainly be stand-alone works of art, we will draw upon the content to develop additional pieces during the class. Painting, drawing, collage, acrylic gel medium transfers, and basic book construction will all be integrated into our projects.
