This class will be held in a live, online format using Zoom.
This is a platform for sharing work and ideas with a supportive group who will do the same. Meeting every other week, to insure you are setting time aside amid the chaos to be creative and learn with like lovers of the book format and all that it offers as a creative outlet. No matter if you are a photographer, painter, printmaker, writer, whatever, the book format is a great vessel to hold any type of creative expression. For each class, I will give creative prompts and demonstrations as needed, plus useful links and resources learned in the intervening two weeks. Most of the class will be time spent presenting work and offering feedback to each other.
Class meets every other Tuesday, June 16 – August 25 (6 classes) 9:00 -11:30am EDT
