    Maps of the World–Creative Book Art with Botanicals

    Art in the Garden: In Collaboration with the Armory Art Center

    Instructor: John Cutrone, Director of the Jaffe Center for Book Arts, FAU

    Book artists are often thought of as very neat and fastidious and this is all well and good, but there are other ways of approaching the book form. This two-day workshop is rooted in a more creative approach and, in fact, we’ll spend the first couple of hours doing just that: exploring painting and printing. Then we’ll turn these paintings into pages of embellished artists’ books. Each student will work on two books over the course of the two days, while learning useful techniques in binding, collage, and low-tech printing. You might want to have a theme in mind and your books will evolve organically from there. This workshop takes place in the Mounts Auditorium.
