What you notice isn't what every person notices. The objects, people, and activities that are ordinary to you are probably fascinating to someone older, or far away, or a long time from now.

In this class, you'll use the same tools that grown-up writers use: creative metaphors, lively verbs, careful attention, and information from all of the senses. At MCBA we'll work together in the printing, paper and binding studios as a book artists to create a unique book that shows what your world is like right now, a book that shows exactly what you notice, sense, and feel in your regular life. You'll end up with a book, made by you, that is perfect to give as a gift to a faraway friend or relative, or to keep for the future.
