Instructor: John Cutrone, Book Artist Armory Art Center
Book artists are often thought of as neat and fastidious and this is all well and good, but there are other ways of approaching the book form. This two-day workshop is rooted in a more creative approach and, in fact, we’ll spend the first couple of hours doing just that: exploring painting and printing. Then we’ll turn these paintings into pages of embellished artists’ books. Each student will work on two books over the course of the two days, while learning useful techniques in binding, collage, and low-tech printing. You might want to have a theme in mind and your books will evolve organically from there.
The Art in the Garden program is subsidized through a Batchelor Foundation grant that supports education.
