Participants will expand and enrich their approach to book art through experimenting with materials, techniques and juxtapositions of ideas. Participants will begin with a concept (spiritual, literary, science-based, narrative-based, etc.) and will then explore visual possibilities with book-related forms. Participants will work from with materials like memorabilia, news clippings, poetry, family photos, vintage books and collected recyclables. The focus will be on finding a true synthesis of form and content. Each participant will be encouraged to choose the most fitting path for his/her individual project through guided concept development and instruction in basics of book making. The goal is for each student to create a unique and meaningful artist’s book.
