Altered Book Workshop
My 2D Design students at Georgia Gwinnett College displayed their altered books and held a workshop at the Gwinnett County Public Library, Saturday April 1st between 2:30pm – 4:30pm. They re-purposed GCPL’s retired children’s books through painting, drawing and collage. After harvesting and extracting the book’s characters, background subjects and phrases, my students rearranged and transform these elements to make a new story that was entirely their own. As for the workshop, my students shared their creative processes and favorite techniques with visitors of all ages.
