Pre-College: Mixed-Media Narrative Art, PR 710PC

with Rosae Reeder


Storytelling is an art form that has been passed down for centuries and in many cultures, the storyteller is highly regarded as being the keepers of history and culture. The stories told, helped people make sense of the world, taught children about their traditions, were entertaining and educational. Storytelling is a huge part of communication and it is something that we all do, even in regular conversation.

In this one-week intensive course, you will make an Artist Book using your personal narrative/ story, alternative printmaking techniques and book structure. By combining images and techniques such as packing tape transfers, watercolor monoprint, Geli plate printing, bookbinding and more, you will create an Artist book that fully expresses the intent of your narrative.

Discussion and presentation about storytelling and the history of books will be introduced along with one-on-one discussions about personal narrative and book structure. Artist books are the modern and creative vessels of storytelling. Learn to use the techniques described to tell your own stories like the storytellers of the past.
