Starting in the Fall of 2012, the Center for Book Arts is proud to announce
The Center for Book Arts' Education Program strives to engage a wide audience, providing beginning students and professional artists alike with a comprehensive and technically challenging curriculum. In addition to foundation classes in letterpress printing and bookbinding, we provide structured opportunities for working artists from other media to expand their creative practice in bookmaking.
For students who wish to fully immerse themselves in the study of book arts, we have created a structured program which encourages the study and creation of the art of the book. Our new certificate program consists of 210 total hours of class time, divided among 3 areas:
Binding (90 hours of required courses)
Printing (90 hours of required courses)
Electives (30 hours minimum.)
