Bookmaking Workshop for Seniors
Post date: Jan 28, 2020 1:58:50 PM
The Room to Write is so excited to announce the first of a series of Seniors Writing workshops that we will be bringing to communities in the north of Boston region. Join us for a FREE Bookmaking Workshop facilitated by singer/songwriter/artist Lisa Bastoni.
In this 2-hour workshop, we will be writing, illustrating, and assembling a complete hand-made book. Seniors are encouraged, but not required, to invite a young person (grandchild, mentee or family friend aged 10 years & older) to join them. We will follow a series of guided writing and drawing exercises to find meaningful, vivid stories. Our focus will be on fun and creative connection, process over product. Everyone will leave with a beautiful handmade book as a memento of the day. No art or writing experience is required, and all materials will be provided.
Lisa Bastoni is an award-winning singer-songwriter, known for her thoughtful story songs and natural way with words and melody. With a Masters in Art Education, Lisa is also an experienced visual artist and arts educator who encourages students of all ages to connect with the joy of creative expression. www.lisabastoni.com
