Photography and the Artists Book

Class Description

In this 4 week class students will explore the possibilities of making a one of a kind artist book.  This class will combine elements of analogue photography, digital photography, found object and bookbinding to create these personalized books.   

This class involves a field trip to the UW Rare Books collection as well as demonstrations, in class critiques, online resources and access to cameras and darkroom resources.

While this intensive may be taken independently, it is an elective that is designed to work in conjunction with our Art and Design Pre-College Foundations program. Please see that description or email if you have any questions.
