Boys Book Club

An after school project called the GUTENBERG BOYS BOOK CLUB has me all inspired to help 10 boys to write,create and make their own,individual book.They certainly have Jane and I very enthused.The delight in their eyes is every so exciting as I can see the ideas whirling round in their heads.Most have a very vivid view on how they want their book to look, while others are very open to listen and happy to bounce ideas around.Im finding this a very interesting project,they are my muse at the moment which has made me rather keen to create.Is this what drives most people to devote their lives to teaching?I think it might !

We have aged paper( coffee granual's were a favourite that had the artroom smelling like Miss Mauds),created a book with a spine and started making embellishments with airdry clay.The boys really enjoyed some rubber stamping too.Gotta get them while there young and bring them to the dark side,he-he.The dragon book I made below seemed to be a hit as was the metal tape covers.

.Who says making male art is hard !

This Tuesday will see them all putting their hand dyed papers on the covers and learning to set an eyelet which I'm sure they are all going to love smashing with a hammer as much as I do.

Just thought I would share where my heads been at lately and this post is dedicated to the lovely Deb Baker who is ever inspiring and offer's encouragement to those that are lazy bloggers.he-he.

Cheers one and all
