Philadelphia and the University of the Arts

For the past two Mondays I traveled to Philadelphia to teach a special pop-up session for the students in Alice Austin’s book arts class at the University of the Arts. Despite bad weather, students showed up to try their hand at paper engineering. We made a series of models–pop-up platforms, props, V-folds, and other forms–which students can later use within the book formats Alice demonstrates over the course of the semester. I had a lot of fun with the students, and also enjoyed seeing my Philadelphia friends, Patty Smith, Mary Phelan, Susan Vigeurs, Sarah Van Keuren, and Lori Spencer.
