New Beginnings Bookmaking Residency

My new art residency began today at a local high school. I will lead AP students in a Sculpture I class to create artists books based on themes they've been working on all year. On the first day I shared a variety of book structures with them and talked about the uniqueness of artist's books as an art form. 

To warm up, students were invited to make their marks on a large sheet of brown paper and a piece of corrugated cardboard with tempera paint. Later we will fold them up to make a simple book form.
