Re: [BKARTS] Opportunities at The Center for Book Arts



It would be interesting to know who is supporting the tuition-free artists'
book curriculum.

Be sure to check our website for more information and application
guidelines
for the following opportunities at the Center :

As part of its Education Outreach Program, the Center for Book
Arts offers a
tuition-free, five-day intensive workshop in hand bookbinding and
artist's
books, especially for high school students.  Participants will
explore their
individual cultural background through the process of making
books.  Basic
structures will be taught to create one-of-a-kind artists' books
that depict
the student's relationship with family, community and culture of
origin.
This workshop is open to all artistic levels, although it is open
only to
students in the 8th through 12th grade in June 2005.  The
workshop will be
held August 8-12, 2005, Monday through Friday, from 10am to 4 pm.
Students
must possess an interest in the project and see it to completion
over the
course of the week. The workshop is tuition free for those
accepted. Contact
the Center for an application.

This Fall the Center will continue our Stein Family Scholarship
Fund for
Advanced Studies in Book Arts. In 2005, the Center will award 2-4
scholarships to individuals who have demonstrated a commitment to
the
artistic endeavors of the book arts. The purpose of this program
is to
provide opportunities to individuals committed to developing
careers in the
book arts field, and to further the growth of this artistic
profession.
Stein Scholars will receive free tuition for up to 60 hours of
course-time.

The Center for Book Arts invites applications for Letterpress
Printing &
Fine Press Publishing Seminar For Emerging Writers. The next
section of this
seminar is scheduled for Fall 2005. Participants will hear
lectures from
various professionals in the field - printers, fine press
publishers, book
artists, and dealers, to get a practical overview of letterpress
printing
and fine press publishing. They will learn the basics of
letterpress
printing, both traditional typesetting and options with new
technology, by
collaboratively printing a small edition of chapbooks or other
projects.
