[BKARTS] Cultural Autobiography



 
As part of its Education Outreach Program, the Center for Book Arts
offers a tuition-free, daytime 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 2006.  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.
 
The workshop will be held July 31-August 4, 2006, Monday through
Friday, from 10am to 4 pm.  The workshop was developed and has been
taught by book artist New York Public Library staff member Cheryl
Shackleton-Hawkins since 1993.  
 
Please spread the word to high-school age students who you think may
