Learn about the art of the book in this eight-week course for adults ages 55 and older. Each participant creates an artist book filled with their own writing and reflection on an object of importance in their lives. Museum curators and archivists share museum collection objects related to book and paper arts in Alaska, and participants gain access to works that speak to traditions of bookmaking in Alaska. Each session builds on previous sessions, providing a broad understanding of various book art forms. The course culminates with participants creating individual artist books as well as a shared group project. The sessions, co-taught by Susan Joy Share and Hollis Mickey, are designed for all levels, abilities and mobilities; no previous book arts experience needed. FREE. Registration required, includes all sessions in series. Participation in this program does not include museum admission.
