Porter Creative Commons is a collaboration between the Sesnon Gallery and Porter Core. This year's focus is BOOK ARTS.
These hands-on workshops with professional artists will inspire Porter Frosh to take a closer look at Core Course readings. In these workshops, participants will challenge the formal conventions of the book format, using repurposed books as canvases for mixed-media collages with found materials, transfer techniques, and drawing to create exciting new artworks along with learning some tradational book making techniques.
