MAKING AN ILLUSTRATED ARTIST BOOK with Venus Lukic

Students will work with a text of their choice (poem, prose, statement) and, using it for inspiration, will
hand-make and illustrate a short artist book. The artist will hold mini skills workshops each day, based on
group interests, to support their individualized projects, such as storyline and composition, figurative drawing,
painting with watercolours (paint, pencils and markers); light and shadow; portraiture, composition and
creative bookmaking techniques. Texts could explore various themes depending on student interests. The
project will strive to maintain a supportive inclusive environment for the exploration of personal identities and
social situations which may be shared within the classroom space.

Materials: Watercolour (or other types of) paper, watercolours (paint, pencils and/or markers),
markers, pencils, office materials.

Grade Levels: Secondary Grades 9-11
