Teen Mentor Workshop, Washington, D.C.

 

This Sunday I presented a mentor workshop at the National Museum of Women in the Arts, with sixteen teens ages 13 to 16 in attendence. We started with a hands-on session on paper engineering, and everyone designed their own pop-up cards. The results were lively dimensional illustrations of everything from faces, to room interiors and landscape scenes. After a snack break, everyone went to the museum library for a viewing of the current show of artists’ books. I ended the workshop with a showing of my own books, including and in-the-dark look at my lighted book, “Five Luminous Towers, a Book to be Read in the Dark.”
