Re:  Upcoming Altered Books Course in Boston

Revisioned:  The Collaged and Altered Book
A Workshop taught by Sharon McCartney  with slide talks by Holly Harrison
Course Information:

This four session workshop will present an eclectic and innovative approach 
to making  one-of-a-kind artist books. It is intended for intermediate to 
advanced students with some background in drawing, painting, and/or bookmaking. 
Extending the vocabulary of collage, students will be challenged to investigate 
ways of altering existing books by using mixed media, found objects, surface 
embellishment, and simple printing techniques.  The altered book will be 
considered in a variety of forms, as a sculptural object, as a collection of images, 
as a vessel for words and imagery, and as a point of departure for play and 

Course Schedule:
The course will be run in a total of four Saturday  sessions, each  lasting 
from 10-4 pm,  
on the following dates: Feb 14,   Feb 28,  March 13, and April 17. 
It will be held at the Arlington Center for the Arts, 41 Foster Street in 
Arlington.  Class limit will be 12.   

Cost and Refund Policy:  
The cost of the course (24 hours of instruction plus handouts) is $180 
            with an additional materials fee of $20. 
Registration  will begin immediately and will be on a first come/first served 
basis.   Your registration will be considered complete after I have received 
your check for $200.00 ( I will send you confirmation via email). Due to the 
need to rent space at the Arlington Center, refunds after 1/30/04 will be made 
only if the studentās spot is filled.  Reimbursements will not be made for 
missed classes.  If class fails to run due to underenrollment, the entire amount 
will be returned.

Please send your check for $200 made out to:  Sharon McCartney  42 Fletcher 
Ave  Lexington, MA  02420.  Please include your phone number and email address.

Materials List:  
A list of tools and materials to be provided as well as to be brought by each 
student will be sent upon registration.

The course has been designed with plenty of time between sessions to allow 
students to apply the information to individual projects that will be developed 
throughout the course.  I intend for the course to be fast paced and full of 
useful information and to generate an environment of shared excitement and 
exploration as students and intructors challenge each other to stretch their 
approaches and to create meaningful work.
