- Find a book artist whose work speaks to you in some way (inspires you, something you want to emulate, etc.). Write roughly 1 page about the artist and your thoughts on his/her work. Email me a link to the artist’s work (I’ll collect and post these on the blog). Bring in a hard copy of your reaction to class.
- Make your own magic book–try out different materials, incorporate words and images, try adding more pages etc. Go CRAZY! (You get participation points for this, so don’t worry about doing it wrong)
- Purchase/gather supplies so that you’ll be prepared for the upcoming classes.
