Detail of my folding sketchbook
Join Asia Region Art Educators
The photographs are of an example I made for a workshop. Here in the UK it's considered inappropiate for a visiting artist to take photographs in school so I don't have any images of the work the children did.
I've done the same project with two groups, one a Yr 12 (UK year12) group and a Year 6 group, both coped well as you can add or take away as many 'pages' as you like. It's pretty simple as you just join rectangles of card together using strips of material as hinges - leave sufficient space so the card can hinge both ways. When the glue on the hinges is dry then you can paint both sides and add collage, writing, or whatever seems fun. It's good to get the children to think about what happens when the folded card 'pages' interact with one another. With the younger ones I turn it into a game as though we are creating a puzzle.
You can of course develop it in all sorts of different ways as I did with the older students who did it as part of a sculpture/3D project.
Hope this helps, if you would like to know more than just let me know. I recently worked with Maree Mann in creating a digital mural in the HKIS canteen, (Ithink it was HKIS), we did it all on SKYPE with me sat in my studio at home in the UK, it was fun.
Hi there Tom
I LOVE this project!!!! I am wondering if you have any more photos and any lesson plans about how to do this. What age kids did you work with on this one?
Thanks so much
like this idea
