Building Books

November's turning out to be a pretty busy month. I'm pictured here with D.C.'s Seaton Elementary art teacher Terry Thomas (on left) looking over decorated papers her third grade students made with watercolor and plastic wrap, in my hands-on workshop in collaboration with the National Museum of Women in the Arts, Bridging Communities program. The students will use these papers in one-of-a-kind artist's books they create. Students learn from professional artists, writers and illustrators how to write, illustrate and develop unique book formats. At the conclusion of the program the student's book are exhibited at the woman's museum downtown in Washington, D.C.
