NEW BRITAIN MUSEUM OF AMERICAN ART

Studio@4

Artist Books with Amy Estabrook

Thursday, October 26, 2017

Students creating original artwork in the Museum's interactive ArtLab

For those visitors who have explored the Museum's exhibition California Dreaming: Ed Moses, Billy Al Bengston & Ed Ruscha, it is apparent that Ed Ruscha's work is heavily influenced by large-scale text and typography. However, he also made several hand-held artist books. This unconventional medium offers the added element of touch to the art-viewing experience, creating a more intimate moment.

Led by teaching artist Amy Estabrook, Studio@4 students will try their hand at being an author, an artist, and a publisher by constructing artist books. They will learn how to measure, cut, glue, sew, and bind drawings, writing, or collage into a book style of their choice. Students should come prepared with ideas for their book's content; and if they'd like to incorporate collage, they should bring preferred materials (e.g. magazines, photos, etc.) from home.
