The Artists' Board Game

TUITION RECEIVED ON OR BEFORE JULY 15: $475 / TUITION RECEIVED AFTER
JULY 15: $495 / STUDIO FEE $60

The board game format offers the artist a wide range of creative paths,
from the design and printing of the board itself to the creation of game
pieces, development of a philosophical premise and theme for the game
and the writing of the rules of play.  During this five-day intensive
workshop we will collectively design a game board and print it using
various letterpress techniques. We will then create game pieces as well
as game instructions that will allow the board to be used for the
playing of multiple games. Every participant will take home a full game
set at the end of the week. Our goal is not the development of an idea
for a commercial blockbuster game, but rather to create working board
games that are meaningful as well as fun and that take full advantage of
book art techniques that will allow us to create a game set that is both
beautiful and functional. Prerequisite: Basic bookmaking and letterpress
printing experience is required to take this workshop. Location:
Calligraphy & Printmaking Studios
