Altered Books as Art Journals
June 12, 1:00 PM - 3:30 PMFree, and open to everyone!
Atlantic Center for the Arts at Harris House, 214 South Riverside Drive, New Smyrna Beach, FL 32168 (Click For Map)
Come explore the world of altered books as your personal art expression. The goal is to address therapeutic concerns and create positive emotions through personal pages. Altered books provide a symbolically layered means of exploring reflection and transformation, especially when we make art intentionally for growth and wellbeing. We will transform old books and recycle them into personal art expressions that respond to your needs.
Using mixed media, books can be transformed with new materials. Bring in an old book (size of your hand or a bit larger), scraps of fabric, beads, other ephemera or small treasures, words, letters, photocopies, and other images to transform into an altered book. Paint, glue, and basic supplies like scissors will be provided.
8-person capacity. Free
