About this Workshop:

Using a simple single sheet book fold technique, cardboard, and other recycled and found materials, we will create two mini art books that will incorporate expressive mark-making, collage, and multiple mediums. The finished books can be used as pocket-sized art journals that you can continue to add elements to over time. 

Level: All levels welcome!

Registration closes April 7, 2023. Material fees are included with your registration to cover the supplies provided in class.

Anne Barnes is an artist and graphic designer living in Washington, DC. She graduated in June 2020 with an MFA in Visual Arts and worked for many years as a book and cover designer in publishing. Her mixed media work—which includes the use of books as medium and the production of artist’s books—combines a high-keyed color palette, expressive gesture, and symbolic mark-making. The result is the abstracted visualizations of her memories, emotions, and varied perspectives that merge to become metaphors for exploration into themes of human nature, popular culture, feminism, and motherhood.
