September 13, 2018: Tell Me What Hurts: Storytelling and the Healing Arts

September 14, 2018: Writing the Body: Artists' Books for Ourselves and Each Other
Using the history and health of our own bodies, we will create three artists' books each from a different prompt. Through these three projects students will learn to develop autobiographical material into different book structures- the dos à dos, the accordion, and the compound binding. Class taught by Rebecca Goodale.
