3D Adventures in Wonderland: Book Arts

Saturday, November 12   10am-Noon

Fees per workshop: $20 child/adult pair
Enter into the “wonderland” of the Pop-Up Book, a fantastic 3D book format that can take your imagination anywhere it wants to go. After looking at examples of pop-up books by various artists, we will try our hands at drawing, painting, collaging, cutting and finally pasting together our own magical worlds. The workshop will be led by Zigzag Crafts, and taught by Roberta Jeffries (printmaker and book artist), and Susan Jeffries (narrative painter). Children must be aged 8+ to participate and be accompanied by an adult. Limited to 10 parent/child pairs.

Registration is through Reston Community Center, whose support makes this program possible.
