Get creative. Create a statement piece using page folding, paint, and quirky decorations.

Work with an artist. Cristina Sayers is a mixed media artist based in Aptos, her work is very collaborative and colorful.

What is book art?

Book art is a growing trend among both book lovers — using pages of books (or sometimes an entire book) to create something new. You can fold old book pages into an assortment of origami animals or use watercolors to paint an image on a page. You can fold pages from a book into shapes such as trees or hearts. Book art is whatever you decide to create.

Find some inspiration on the MAH Pinterest board.

Get hands-on every Friday at Make, a series of craft nights for all ages.
