CUSTOM YOUTH WORKSHOPS
From a small series of workshops to a semester-long or multi-year program, custom workshops allow teachers to integrate their existing curriculum goals with the visual and literary excitement of the book arts. We are experienced at collaborating with teachers and staff of all grade levels and age groups to plan comprehensive book arts residencies. Experience the book arts at your school, in MCBA studios or through a combination of both.
MCBA works closely with teachers to develop a workshop or series of custom workshops to fit lesson plans, reinforce learning, and improve comprehension. We start with your curriculum goals and objectives and then work together to build a dynamic book arts project that strives to be motivating and meaningful for your students.
A custom workshop may include one or more of the following activities: traditional or sculptural bookmaking, papermaking, paper decoration or printmaking. An age and curriculum-appropriate introduction to book arts and instruction method is planned with classroom teachers. A teacher in-service can be included with each custom workshop.
For custom workshops, MCBA artist instructors spend anywhere from two to twenty hours working with students (pre-K through 12) and teachers in their classrooms. Once the planning is complete, the MCBA artist instructors take care of the details. If the workshops are to take place in the classroom, the artists will arrive at the classroom with all of the materials and tools required for the book arts activities.
