Books as art materials

I love finding old books at library sales.

books for making art

I think of old books as fodder for art making. I can use:

  • The pages for black out poems
  • The covers for journals
  • Pages for printing surfaces

BE brave and make something from a book!

Use old books to make art journals

I look for covers that talk to me, pages with words that jump out at me and subjects that catch my eye.

I am excited to share that I am working on a new class that will be all about repurposing old books and less than perfect prints into beautiful pieces of art.
