classes

  

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 coursework in letterpress printing and bookbinding, we provide structured opportunities for working artists from other media to expand their creative practice in bookmaking.

The Center for Book Arts is proud to announce a new comprehensive certificate program in the book arts. For students who wish to fully immerse themselves in the study of book arts, we have created a structured program which encourages the in-depth study and creation of the art of the book.You can learn more about the program here.

Registration Details:

Registration begins immediately and continues throughout the semester. You are strongly encouraged to register early, as class size is limited and instructors often need to prepare in advance. Classes are filled on a first-come, first-served basis. In order to allow instructors adequate time to prepare workshop materials, please register at least two weeks in advance of the workshop.

You may register in person, by phone, or online. Please note that we cannot reserve your place in a class without having received full payment via credit card or check. Tuition payments will be proccesed as soon as a class has met its minumum enrollment. We will hold your payment if a class is under enrolled until it has met its minimum enrollment.
