Altered Books Class this Fall at DCAD

This too Shall Pass, 2006
Installation with altered book and details

This Leo here is not one to rush summer, no way. However, I am excited about a class I will be teaching at DCAD (Delaware College of Art & Design) this fall on Altered Books. Altered books is a wonderful art form where you take old or recyled books and use a variety of techiniques to transform them into works of art. It will be a combination of book binding, printmaking and collage techniques. We will also look at a variety of works by other artists. It is always alot of fun and no experience is necessary.
