Wow! What a blast!!! Yesterday I taught a FUN group of kids the basics of altered art books!
We discussed how to pick the right book for you. (One boy in the class got a book about how to make laser guns...he was in heaven! Ha!!) We discussed how to glue and prep the pages, and then I showed them some fun and fast techniques for laying down backgrounds. We painted with stencils, and we collaged with papers. SO MUCH FUN, and I thank the Marion Public Library for inviting me to teach this medium, which is so near and dear to me. I truly am IN LOVE with art journaling and altering books and it's such a joy to share it with others.
