Saturday morning surf report…

Filed under: Educational Opportunities, Surfs Up — jackie @ 8:15 am

Good morning surfers.

The spring and summer is when many places offer classes, workshops and retreats in the book and paper arts. It’s never to early to plan so this mornings surf report is all about learning opportunities.

First up on the surf report is The Seattle center for the Book Arts. If you are in the area they offer a nice selection of classes in the book arts. From the site “Our mission is to provide educational, technical, and creative resources for individuals in the pursuit of book arts. Our vision is to foster appreciation, understanding, and acceptance of the book as a contemporary art form and medium for self-expression. Our ultimate aim is to establish a facility specifically designed and equipped for bookmaking and all related art forms.”

Art Unraveled is an art retreat in Pheonix, Arizona that runs from Aug. 5-12, 2007. They have alot of diff. book arts related workshops. From the site “the mixed media art retreat where the mysteries of art are unraveled for you by the finest art instructors from around the U.S. and Canada. Experience the joy of spending 7 days surrounded by like-minded spirits immersed in art, camaraderie, contests and lots of fun!”

The Craft Guild in Dalllas, Texas has some bookbinding classes available this spring. From the site “The Craft Guild of Dallas was founded in 1948 to provide instruction and studios for artists and craftspersons while providing opportunities to exhibit and promote their work.” 

The Womens Studio Workshop in Rosendale, NY offers workshops this summer in book and paper arts. From the site “Women’s Studio Workshop (WSW) is an intimate studio workspace specializing in printmaking, hand papermaking, photography, and book arts. During the Summer Arts Institute (SAI) we share that intimacy through a series of small and intensive workshops. These workshops are designed to offer experiences to support your artistic life through immersion in studio techniques as well as opportunities to develop the content of your work. Each SAI workshop enrolls less than ten people, providing you with an experience that feels less like a class and more like a forum for sharing ideas among peers.”

These are just a few of the many places that will be offering workshops and retreats in the book and paper arts this summer. I will be posting them here as I come across them.

For you local folks, I just updated my schedule of upcoming classes.  I will be adding more once I find out the dates.

Also, please keep an eye on the Education Opportunities board over on the Book Arts Forum as folks have started posting them there.

Surf’s up!
