Participants will learn and create the project and then obtain a materials package to teach the project in their own classroom complete with an instruction sheet that includes a list of California Content Standards that the project fulfills.

Nov. 3rd – Make Books with Kids
presented by C.J. Grossman
Join book artist C.J. Grossman as she teaches participants how to make a multitude of books to use in the classroom with a minimum of materials. Everyone will take home several books including a special matchbox storybook. Books can be used across the curriculum, and this is a great way for students to strengthen their language skills, be encouraged to tell their own stories, and to produce artwork that raises their self-esteem. C.J. has an MFA from California College of the Arts and has taught thousands of adults and children how to make books.
