What do your favorite books mean to you?  Create a portrait that explores the concept of your personal book preferences, how we interpret them and how they are keys to our identity. Participants will make a watercolor inspired on a book, an imaginary book, a group of book titles/quotes or images from books.  Please bring one or more books that you would like to use as a starting point and any visual references to the workshop.
