The second part will focus on basic principles of bookmaking and binding methods that lend many options for cross-discipline lesson plans.
Option 2: CPE1011 | Metal “Selfies” | Sarah Roberts
Explore ways of transforming the ubiquitous “selfie” into a copper or brass sculpture. Demonstrations will include using a smart phone app to simply and quickly abstract a self-portrait and how to translate the image to metal using etching and sawing.

Option 1: CPE1012 | Panoramic Drawing | Katie Pell
Utilizing techniques employed in photography as well as our natural observation, work collaboratively to create two panoramic (extended point of view) drawings.

In the second drawing, two-point perspective will be utilized to create an imaginary cityscape. Both of these projects open up the classroom to the possibilities of working large in a small space as well as working collaboratively in the classroom.
