Continuing my 2019-20 Artist Residency at the Sunland-Tujunga Library, supported by the City of Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs, I led a Bookmaking program, for teens, the winning, fun, wild and versatile Flag Book!
In addition to teens, families attended as well, and learned to fold an accordion spine, attach covers to it, and add the flag pages to create a pattern that created all kinds of options for text and visuals.
Color choices are one of the first ways the young makers express themselves.
Students from the nearby Verdugo Hills High School shared that the artmaking was a welcome break from academic pressures.
Great use of magazine text and letters.
Celebrating “STEAM VHHS” (STEAM is an educational approach to learning that uses Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics as access points for guiding student inquiry, dialogue, and critical thinking, VHHS is Verdugo Hills High School).
So glad the Arts are in there! All of these disciplines must work together if we are to move ahead in this World!
