About this Class:
Workshop • Weds 6-9pm • Apr 5-May 10 • 6 sessions • $120 • Room 203
In this workshop you will focus on the book as medium and examine and apply some of the conceptual and physical practices that artists use to create art through altering books.
Each week we will explore and apply methods and practices that will help you uncover your personal creativity through this artform. By the end of the course you will have projects that demonstrate basic applications of design and conceptual thinking that will give you a foundation in creating meaningful artworks. Bring a book of your choice to first class.
