[BKARTS] Workshop: Developing Ideas for Artit's Books with Susan King

Workshop at Shakerag (Sewanee, TN). www.shakerag.org

June 21-27, 2009
Developing Ideas for
Artist’s Books 
Recent trends in book
arts have focused almost exclusively on book structures and
reproduction techniques. Content is often left until last. This
workshop focuses on generating form and content for books. Participants
will use simple materials, writing exercises, brainstorming techniques,
and class critiques to spark ideas. Although no previous experience is
necessary, this will be a challenging and rewarding workshop. It will
be particularly useful for designers, artists, and writers who want to
approach creative work from the inside out, giving participants tools
that will allow them to work more effectively in the studio. Book
structures and technical issues will be discussed as they relate to
specific projects developed in the class. Participants can expect to
have several mock-ups by the end of this session. 
Students will learn to generate
content-driven work and to critique their own work in progress, as well
as the work of others. Emphasis is on practical problem-solving
technique as it applies to creative work. Previous experience is not
necessary but it is helpful. Participants should be open to trying new
techniques and exercises.
