with Gioia Chilton, MA, ATR-BC & Rebecca Wilkinson, MA, ATR-BC
- Saturday, April 21, 10am-3pm
Come explore the world of altered books, an art form where old books are recycled into new works of art. In altering a book, we might draw or paint on the pages or cover of the book (gasp!), or add magazine images, stamps, or stickers. Using mixed media collage—books can be adorned with fabric, leather, beads, wire, or found objects. Techniques such as cutting out niches, making pockets and doors, transfers, and texture building can be used. Inspiration may strike when the artist finds a word, letter, or image that becomes an interesting background or focal point that generates a personal artistic response.
Altering books provide a symbolically rich means of exploring renewal and transformation, especially when we make art intentionally for healing and to engage in growth and change.
