Students will learn the basics of book construction starting off with small models and working their way up to finished works.
Students should bring a sketchbook, utensils (pens, markers, etc.), and a variety of reference and collage material to include in your book. All other materials will be provided.

Art Building: Room 157, First Floor Open to the Public
RSVP due before 5/6
Jennifer Belair – Jennifer is a mixed media artist predominately working two dimensionally. Her work utilizes print media in conjunction with direct hand drawn imagery. Currently her creative practice focuses on the exploration of interior and exterior relationships using stream of conscious image and mark making.
Dominique Chastenet de Géry – Dominique’s body of work depicts the many facets of the Detroit River. Her use of traditional oil paint underscores the historical perspective of this working river, particularly in this current
highly fluctuating social and political atmosphere. The Detroit River characterizes the city that developed on its banks; a city that grew and thrived because of it. With growing environmental consciousness, the cities' relationship to the waterway is increasingly complex. Dominique paints large scale scenes from personal photographs taken during her frequent forays in and out of the accessible spaces on its banks.
Matthew Garin – Matt is practicing how profound changes– personal and intimate transformations such as memory recall, life observations, and experiences allow the experimental components that inform and contribute to the creation process. This observable investigative progression enabled him to visually interpret his interests which enabled him to reflect upon his own processes and work as a designer.
Courtney Richardson – Courtney is exploring the loss and gain of information that occurs when it is shared through varying accounts of recall (speech, writings, photographs, etc.). Her interests in storytelling, biographies and personal history inspire her to visually examine the values of collective memory.
Kyle Sharkey – Kyle’s recent work has shifted to mixing traditional and nontraditional processes to
bring about a visceral and mysterious image that combines elements of the human body, animalistic forms, and abstraction to create an image that is synonymous with his experience of reality.

Shading the Basic Shapes with Dominique Chastenet de Géry, assisted by Kyle Sharkey
9:00am – 11:30am Old Main: Room 3133 Attendance Limit: 12 RSVP due before 5/13
How to shade the four basic shapes with graphite pencil: The brain uses shadows to place objects in the world. Knowing how to shade a cube, sphere, cone and cylinder is the key to creating a three dimensional illusion on a two dimensional surface. Once these basic forms are clearly understood and mastered, it becomes a question of breaking down and identifying the part of an object that corresponds with a type of shape or part of it, which in turn offers the solution as to how to tackle the shading.
In this workshop, students will be introduced to a systematic approach to shading with graphite pencils; each participant will draw a still life, comprised of real objects, with the help of the instructor and an information sheet to which they can refer.
