Pages of grace.
As the world moves faster and faster, art-making allows us to slow down
and notice the moments of grace that occur in our every day lives.
this restorative bookmaking experience, inspired by the healing-arts
traditions of the indigenous peoples of Mexico, we will learn about the
bark-paper books and ceremonial paper-dolls made by the
Otomi Indians. Then we will build a simple accordion book and fill our
pages with poetry, symbols, and cut-paper sillouettes to create our own
"Blessing Book", expressing gratitude for the many gifts in our lives.
