Alternative Books: You Do You!
Date: July 13
Time: 10 am-3 pm (with a lunch break)
Registration Deadline: July 8
Create your fun, unique and soulful one-of-a-kind art book. We will be using “tossed out” hardcover books. Come prepared to play and experiment, as Claudia will teach various techniques. This fun-filled class is for all skill levels! Bring your hardcover book or select a book from the stash.
Relax and explore your creativity through some of the following processes.
- Gesso prep for pages, book covers, and bindings
- Embroidery/sewing on book pages and added textiles
- Drawing, Painting, Lettering
- Image transfer
- Mark making with handmade tools, sticks, charge cards, combs, etc.
- Windows and secret drawers
- Collage`, magazines, textiles, ticket stubs, newspapers, etc.
Personal exploration and freedom are encouraged!
The “theme” of your Alternative Book is entirely up to you. You do You! Your art book can be wonderfully random, a sketchbook to draw and paint, a photo album, a travel journal, chefs’ notes, quotes, etc.
