Eric Scott
9:00 - 4:30
Wednesday Oct 9

[back to quicklinks]
$ 150  

Challenge your notions of what a book can be and how pages can relate to one another, and engage in a wide range of artmaking and writing activities to weave a visual and written narrative. Transform blank pages into a unified artistic vision as you explore the layering of materials, ideas, and themes. Consider how colors, images, and words can figuratively and literally flow among, across, and through your pages as you change and manipulate the structure of pages with pockets, pop-ups, tears, cutouts, widows, foldouts, and more. Bring your own store bought or hand bound journal or sketchbook, and explore the possibilities for transforming it into a vessel for your creativity.

Supplies Needed to Bring  for Class:

A visual journal or sketchbook - store bought or hand bound
Watercolor paint
Watercolor pencils
Variety of paint brushes
Scissors
Glue Stick (UHU Glue Stick recommended)
Markers, pens, and pencils - a variety of waterproof and water-soluble writing and drawing materials
Craft knife
Cutting mat
Collage materials – maps, photos, postcards, photocopies, colored papers, ticket stubs, and any other visually inspiring and personally relevant items
