For our Keepers of the Faith group, I’ve been teaching an altered books class. The kids are having so much fun with the project. To begin, I got some board books from the thrift store and covered them all with gesso. The kids had a blank book to fill. Below are a few sample pages I made to teach them different techniques they could use.
I set aside three meetings to explore this project, but they have filled their books up in two meetings. The last meeting is next week and I am praying about what to do. I am leaning toward to teaching about blending colors with acrylic paints, and perhaps using this on a page they will collage. I’m lacking on the details though.
I’d thought I’d share some of my favorite blogs I’ve been perusing while searching for inspiration:
And if you have any ideas or links to share with me, please comment. I could use some help. 🙂
