UArts has developed a unique, highly-interdisciplinary program that attracts creative individuals who are interested in more than one art form. Photographers who love to write or designers who can also paint belong in this program. Like UArts itself, the printmaking and book arts courses expose students to a variety of art forms—design, writing, drawing, painting, sculpture.

Art Books & Creativity at the National Museum of Women in the Arts in Washington, DC

Art, Books, and Creativity is a yearlong arts curriculum developed by the National Museum of Women in the Arts. ABC provides meaningful arts learning experiences while highlighting the natural connections between visual arts and language arts. ABC is a model for integrating the visual arts into the core curriculum while maintaining a specific focus on the contributions of women artists to our shared cultural history.

The ABC curriculum promotes visual literacy by developing students' skills in observation, reflection, and arts creation. The curriculum unites visual art and writing through the creation of artists' books, an art form especially suited to linking imagery and language.

Spring/Summer programs:

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

Art Unraveled

Is an art retreat in Pheonix, Arizona that is usually held in August each year. 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 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."

Paper & Book Intensive, now twenty-four years old, is held in the spring/summer of each year in different regions of the country and attended by individuals who are passionate about the book arts, bookbinding, hand papermaking, conservation, and related fields. Motivated beginners and practitioners are welcome.
