Creativity and Content in Making Books

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!


North Hall Room 211

Bookmaking has great potential for use in both art education and art therapy settings. Besides being an enjoyable activity, making books can support a broad age/ability range of students and clients in telling their stories and in promoting understanding of self and others. Starting with fold structures, participants will use text and image to create content that can fold and unfold, providing glimpses of creativity and meaning in the making. Bookmakers may be surprised to discover new insights when they read their work, whether one page at a time, or unfolded like a scroll on one or both sides. Upon completing fold books, participants will learn a second related structure that builds on the first. This daylong class is suitable for therapists, educators, and others seeking a creative process that offers potential for both intimate reflection and psychological distance. Also, it promises to be a lot of fun!

Eligible for 6.0 Credits: ATCB, NBCC; ASWB, APA, MFT, Nursing; SWNYS
