Fran Kovac will lead a Kids Only workshop to Build a Book!
Here’s a great way for children, ages 6-9, to learn to make a simple book to give as a gift or to keep for themselves. We’ll start with a simple folded structure. Then, using drawing and collage, we’ll make a text block for a second book, and finish by putting our drawings into simple and attractive covers. Students may bring photos or other images to collage and their favorite art supplies (no paints, please!). No other tools or experience necessary, just bring your imagination!
Limited to 8 students.
No fee, but registration needed by Wednesday, October 10th. To register, stop in the store, call us at 216.791.2665 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
