Sculptural Book Arts

The book is not only a form we use to share information, but can be a teaching tool in itself. Participants in this course will work under group and individual instruction to make two sculptural books. Engaging students in Iowa Core subject matter through physical object allows for a deeper understanding of that subject’s relevance and how we share information with others. These structures employ basic arithmetic and geometry skills and can house content related to any subject matter. Participants in this course will experience first hand, the sense of ownership that making an object, especially one that is so essential to education, can lend to many social and cultural topics. They will be shown how to use affordable materials and will be shown techniques that can be adapted for a variety of age and skill-levels.
