Class Details

This course will investigate the processes and ideas associated with the making of artists’ books, works that are fine art objects that generally use visual images and/or text. For example, individual projects could include visual diaries, three-dimensional pop-up books, solely visual narratives, autobiography, literary text/image collaborations, animated “flip” books, or sculptural books. Limited-editions as well as one-of-a-kind work will be encouraged. Media options include painting, drawing, etching, lithography, relief printing, photography and bookbinding techniques (from sewn bindings to boxes). As a tutorial, this course is designed to support individual directions, to stress student participation and responsibility for learning, and to examine different points of view. Students will meet in groups of two for critique of individual projects in the tutorial format each week — students are expected to give 20-30 minute presentations about their work and to respond to questions and criticism. Students will also meet once a week as a group for demonstrations, lectures, and discussion of readings.
