[BKARTS] Workshop at South Florida's Jaffe Center for Book Arts

The Jaffe Center for Book Arts at Florida Atlantic University's Wimberly Library in Boca Raton announces a weekend workshop with artist Béatrice Coron.

CUTTING for DESIGN with instructor Béatrice Coron
Two Days: Saturday & Sunday, November 10 & 11, 2007
10:00 AM to 4:00 PM
Jaffe Center for Book Arts: Book Studio 350C
Class Limit: 10

A creative approach to papercutting: participants will learn to use papercuttings as images and as tools for stenciling while experimenting with 3-dimensional structures for artists' books. During this class we will explore how to balance positive and negative space and the different ways to adapt photographs and illustrations to papercuttings. For beginners or for advanced students to challenge their skills. Tips, tricks, and resources will be provided.

We will work on the first day with black & white and color collage, and on the second day with stencils and dimensions. We'll be working with stencil paper (kakisibugami, linseed oil and acrylic paper), vellum, and different styles of Tyvek.

Tuition Schedule
General Public: $110 plus materials fee $8
FAU Students (with proof of current registration): $65 plus materials fee $8

One work study scholarship is available, which offers free tuition to a currently-enrolled FAU student. The scholarship student is responsible only for the materials fee ($8). In exchange for this opportunity, the scholarship student will be expected to provide assistance to Jaffe Center staff before, during, and after the workshop--about 4 hours total. Deadline for application: October 4, 2007. The application process is very informal; instructions are also at the webpage for this workshop.

Béatrice Coron is an artist specializing in cuttings used in artist books, illustrations, and public art. Her cut designs are made of paper, glass, or metal, from small to monumental.
