Katherine McCanless Ruffin, Book Arts Lab, Clapp Library

This credit-bearing class will be offered in the Book Arts Lab in the Spring of 2014.

Course Description

This advanced studio course explores the relationship between text and image through relief printing techniques and innovative book structures. Studio projects will include the production of limited edition artist's books that focus on the interplay of two and three dimensions in the book form. Emphasis will be placed on creative problem solving within the limitations of technology, and on the importance of the act of revision. Class sessions in the Papermaking Studio and Special Collections will augment intensive studio work in Clapp Library's Book Arts Lab.

Prerequisite: ARTS 105, 107, 108/CAMS 138, or 109/CAMS 139 Distribution: Arts, Music, Theatre, Film, Video
