Kid’s Poetry and Book Arts Camp ROCKS!!!

July 16, 2008

What can I say? It was fantastic! After a fun week of teaching a book arts workshop at the Mendocino Art Center,  I rushed home to set up the Art Barn for the grand opening and the Kid’s Poetry & Book Arts Camp. The kids really enjoyed their free-form writing and we made some fantastic messes while creating paste paper and wonderful poetry books. After four days, they each had three finished accordion books, one with a completed, illustrated poem. Thank you Crystal and Susan for being there to help, we couldn’t have done it without you!

These collages are what I call “Painting with Paper,”and they are incredibly fun to do. These are all fairly complex examples, but one can create very simple collages with this technique also. When I see paper, especially gorgeous colors from magazine photos- I think “COLOR! Tear-up! Piece together!” What a way to recycle.
