Event Description

About the Session

Learn how to create monoprints without a press and turn it into a double accordion book with a spine and jacket. After experimenting with simple printmaking tools and techniques and making one-of-a-kind prints, turn them into a double accordion book with a spine joined by a jacket with a long stitch in order to build three-dimensional spaces. By the end of the session, you’ll know how to conceptualize, print, and fold an artist’s book with content inside.

About the Virtual Educator Camp Series

NMWA’s virtual Educator Summer Camp is designed for all educators—schoolteachers, adults supporting students learning remotely, home school instructors, scout leaders, etc. We just ask that you come with your learners in mind and a playful spirit!

We will offer independent 1.5-hour sessions on Tuesdays and Thursdays from July 6 through July 27. Sessions, inspired by the Art, Books, and Creativity (ABC) Institutes and NMWA’s collection, are hands-on, participatory, and fun. Sessions will explore NMWA’s collection and resources, introduce historic and contemporary women artists, and engage participants in experimental making and close looking.

Guest instructors include artists and educators from around the country. You will receive a recommended supply list, applicable digital resources, and a Zoom meeting link in advance of each session. Camp activities are designed to make use of materials and tools you might have at home, to encourage repurposing and seeing everyday objects in a new light.

Register for one session or many depending on your interest and commitments.

Session participants can request certificates of completion reflecting total earned participation hours.
