I’m scheduled to teach a 3-day book arts class this summer at Idyllwild, this amazing place in the mountains above Palm Springs, California in the San Bernardino National Forest. It sits at an elevation of 5,300 feet and is 2 hours from Los Angeles, 2 hours from San Diego and 1 hour from Palm Springs.
In order to encourage enrollment, they are offering these discounts:
“If there is space available in a workshop 30 days before it begins, teachers (K-12 and college, currently employed, full time) and current college/university students (full time) may enroll at 50% off of tuition.
That would be June 1 or 2 that they could call to register, but they can go ahead and call now so we know to expect them when the time comes – we can pencil them in for now.
I would also be happy to extend a 20% discount to anyone you refer, plus another $75 off if they “bring a friend”.
Artist Book Strategies: Exploring Music & the Natural World
Course # AABA Ø1
Music, nature and the visual arts have long found inspiration in each other, not only in the experience of these worlds, but in the systems of pattern and rhythm that each embrace. In this three-day workshop we will draw our inspiration from both the visual language found in the Idyllwild landscape and in small pieces of music as we create artist books. We will learn some low-tech printing techniques (pochoir and rubbing), make models of four-to-five book structures (single and double section bindings, accordion-folded structures, a stacked folio binding, and a layered “carousel” structure), and look at a variety of artist books for strategy and inspiration. You will take away at least one completed book project combining a system of marks derived from the natural world and inspired by music. Some experience in the visual arts or bookmaking is helpful.
Materials: A complete materials list will be sent upon registration.
Lab Fee: $25 (Includes pre-cut parts to 4–5 book structures, extra paper for individual projects, adhesives and inks.)
Enrollment limited to 15 students.
