[BKARTS] FREE Teen Bookmaking Workshops in the Seattle Public Libraries



SCBA has partnered with the Seattle Public Libraries to present free
workshops at Seattle Public Library branches all over the city. If your
child is aged 10-18 and you looking for fun activities to fill the summer,
be sure to stop by one of our workshops listed below. These workshops,
presented by Seattle Center for Book Arts in partnership with the Seattle
Public Libraries as part of the Summer Reading Program, and funded by the
Mayor's Office of Arts & Cultural Affairs, are free drop-in workshops - no
pre-registration required!

Double-sided Book
Ages 10-14

The Double-sided Book is two books that share a back cover, which presents
an opportunity to house two stories or ideas in the same structure. This
project is a standard book format with a twist, that provides youth
participants a feeling of accomplishment creating a familiar object, while
conceptualizing the sculptural possibilities of a book. Students interpret
and organize the concepts in the book's content to relate to the book's
physical structure.
