Rustle up some design and content for your students’ bookmaking projects. Book Arts staff in cahoots with some high-falutin community artists go whole hog in this four-hour shindig. Join them for a little horsin’ around and learn simple ways for your little buckaroos to add images to their bookwork. Drawin’, stampin’, rubbin,’ printin,’ transferrin’—all done with simple, readily available, and kid-friendly materials. Get your registration in lickety-split. You don’t want to miss this hullabaloo!

Allyn Hart, of Alta, Utah, uses printmaking, sewing, drawing, and painting to produce intricate monoprints, just one of the art forms that make up her extensive portfolio. Sandy Brunvand, a co-founder of Saltgrass Printmakers in Salt Lake City, involves both material and metaphoric layers in her prints, evoking connections to the places she inhabits. Laura Decker, Mary Toscano, and Becky Thomas, of the Book Arts Program, feel incredibly lucky to have jobs where they are involved with art and bookmaking every day. All three are active participants in the literary and visual arts communities.
