18 Feb 2012 SCRAP Workshop: Make Books with Kids w/ CJ Grossman
March 17th 1-4pm fee: $40
Learn to make a multitude of innovative book structures from the point of view of teaching them to young people. Book artist C.J. Grossman will teach participants how to make more than a dozen books to use in the classroom with a minimum of materials and preparation including a special matchbox storybook. Participants will learn how to help students develop their interest in books and strengthen their language skills, as well as encourage them to tell their own stories and help them produce artwork that raises their self-esteem.
C.J. has a wealth of experience teaching students of all ages to make books. She has taught thousands of kids how to make books and hundreds of teachers how to construct and utilize books with their students. Participants will take home a wealth of books and ideas that can be shared in class tomorrow! Parents, grandparents, art therapists and other educators are all welcome.
