It was a rich and fascinating experience to work with 11-14 year olds in creating books this summer…in our class, “The Art of the Book“.
I had the opportunity to work with students every day for an hour, for 5 weeks straight, and it was joy!
Our 14 year old maker…loves PINK!
Flag book extraordinaire!
Pink accents painted on illustrations taken from book being altered.
Beautiful marbling work done on watercolor paper cover of this 11 year old maker’s side-bound book.
This same 11 year old (going into 6th grade) is an amazing painter, self-taught to some extent.
She spontaneously decided she would create this astounding painting on her multi-colored accordion fold book with terrific results.
Students created their own “book cloths” through painting with acrylic on canvas, and using it as a binding for their single signature books, done with real book board.
