Professional Development Schedule

Don’t Judge A Book By It’s Cover: Book Arts

Book Arts for any Classroom: A workshop focusing on the introduction of basic Book Binding and how the materials, techniques and process of making books can be applied to not just to art but to the subjects of math, science, literacy, creative writing, hand/eye coordination and basic problem solving.

Instructor: Michele Brody

Michele Brody received her BA from Sarah Lawrence College in 1989 and an MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 1994. Utilizing her strong background in liberal arts, she creates site specific, mixed media, installations and works of public art that are generated by the history, culture, environment, and architecture of a wide range of exhibition spaces. While living and working in such places as France, Costa Rica, California, the Midwest, Germany, and her home of New York, her art career has developed into a process of working in collaboration with each new community as a means towards developing an interpretation of the sense of a place as an outsider looking in.

Registration Fee: $35.00
