I will lead bookmaking workshops with Visual and Performing Arts (VAPA) English and Art students at Verdugo Hills High School in Tujunga, CA, supported by the Los Angeles Unified School District.

Students will create one-of-kind BOOKS by hand, and develop them with print and visual media to create unique works of writing, visual art and craft.

I will work with Seniors in the VAPA English class, and Freshmen in the VAPA art class.

These workshops are for specific VAPA students at Verdugo Hills High School, and will take place in VAPA classes during school hours.
