The Center for Book Arts offers outreach programming in bookbinding, printing, and other techniques. Our programs strengthen literacy and art programming for students. Our network of Teaching Artists form a positive, creative community and a valuable resource for any young person interested in the arts. Teaching Artists work with students and/or teachers, either at the Center or at their school. Contact us for more information.
Neighborhood Book Arts Project is a “mobile bookmaking workshop” targeted at children and teens, aged 8-18, living in New York City’s five boroughs. Through a series of structured, hands-on exercises tailored to each neighborhood and organization, teaching artists expose students to the practice of bookmaking and paper-making, and provide tools for creative expression.
The Center for Book Arts offers team building workshops to creative organizations seeking to strengthen connection, communication, and collaboration among employees. Taught by one of the Center’s dedicated Teaching Artists, groups will be led though a 2 to 3 hour bookmaking or printing press workshop, learning the fundamentals of these art forms.
The Center offers onsite basic bookmaking and letterpress workshops to groups of students with advanced notice of at least two weeks. These classes are a great way for college, high school, or any interested groups over the age of 12 to get a hands on experience with printing and binding processes.
