Altered Books for Teens
Students learn about how an altered book is a form of mixed media artwork that changes a book from it’s original form to a different form, changing it’s appearance or meaning. Teens will choose a topic that is meaningful to them (i.e. travel, comics, love, friendship). Then, students will have the opportunity to work with paint, vintage papers, feathers, stencils, and markers to create compositions in their book that align with their book theme. If they are up for a challenge, teens can also learn the “pop-up” book technique to give their altered book a 3-D quality. The options are endless! Bring your creativity and have fun!
