Pop-Up Travel Journal 1S20 CANCELED
Assemble origami-folded components into a book form that will hold photos, wrappers, tickets and other ephemera from your travels. The book begins as a simple square but opens into a dramatic, multifaceted container that includes pockets, flaps, windows and pop-outs. Make it beautiful with hand-printmaking techniques, collage, cutting, painting, drawing and text. Limit 8 students
Susan Porter began to combine book making and journal writing as a staff member of Boston Children’s Museum in the 1970's. Her colorful, multi-dimensional art journals blur boundaries between collage, printmaking and book arts. In recent years, she taught these hybrid forms to adults, teens and children through Cooperative Artists Institute and The Peace Drum Project – and now at the Eliot School.
Her books have been shown widely at libraries, through Beyond the Book exhibitions and at Hamill Gallery. She holds a BS in Education from Boston College, with additional study at Massachusetts College of Art & Design, Montserrat College of Art and Fine Arts Work Center (Provincetown).
“I love every minute in my studio, but teaching brings a different kind of reward. There is nothing like seeing that look of wonder cover a student’s face when they realize they have created something of beauty.”
