[BKARTS] August through December 2007 class schedule



Greetings from the Center for Book Arts,
 
Maybe you've been putting off registering for that class you've had
your eye on all summer-
Or perhaps you're eager to get a jump on the fall season-
 
Either way, you should check the current class schedule at the Center
for Book Arts. Our complete class listings through December are on our
website at www.centerforbookarts.org/classes. You can register online
or over the phone. 
 
Coming up this month we're looking forward to: 
 
NEW! Letterpress Poster Design
Students will receive an overview of letterpress poster history,
including a review of historic and modern poster design, the use of
wood and lead type, and the incorporation of other print methods
including stenciling. Students will design and print a group poster
project. If time allows, students will continue with individual
projects. 
Basic typesetting and familiarity with cylinder presses required. 
August 18-19, Saturday and Sunday, 10 am to 4pm                  Sarah

Paper Marbling
This course will teach the basics of water-based (Turkish) paper
marbling using acrylic and tempera paints.  Learn how to prepare paper
for marbling as well as basic marbling techniques. You will then have
the opportunity to make your own marbled papers and patterns. Students
who wish to marble their own specific types of paper should bring them
on the first day of class to be prepared for marbling on day two.
