Young Artists: Images & Text- Create Your Own Book - Summer School Week 3 (10-15yrs)

Young Artists: Images & Text - Create Your Own Book

One-week summer holiday course for ages 10-15
23rd – 27th August, Monday–Friday 

10am – 4pm with a one hour lunch break

Inspired by self-published artist books, where the author has creative control of the entire process, this course will use drawing, typography, collage and printmaking to create a narrative for a chosen audience. From the humble zine to the letter pressed artefact, in this five-day course students will explore a variety of artists books culminating in a book of their own making. 

With self-portraiture as a starting point, Young Artists will be invited to tell a story inspired by a variety of drawing exercises to stimulate the imagination. By combining both drawing from observation and drawing from the imagination students will create a truly unique piece of book-art.

  • Artist book making (including access to a 5 x 3 Adana Press)
