9th Grade Handmade Sketchbooks

12th Grade Papermaking, Printmaking & Book Arts

The objective of this course is to create a completely unique expression of each student’s individuality through the fabrication of a visual manifesto in book form. Standing on a threshold, we pause for a moment and look back on the path we have traveled and look forward to a new life of independence. A manifesto is a clear statement of intentions: telling people publicly who you are, what you are all about or what you value. Students are making paper, writing a visual manifesto, printing their manifesto on the paper using collograph, block, dry point and monoprint techniques, then hand binding their pages into a creatively bound book of their own design.
