The Book Art Certificate Program is a 27-credit, one-year system of study that immerses the enrollee into the world of bookmaking as an artistic expression.  Courses include Book Arts, Publishing, Papermaking, and selected credits from the following studio offerings: Book Illustration, Graphic Design, Photography, and Drawing.  It also includes a final capstone course of the Certificate project that may include a series of works of either a traditional or experimental nature, or an edition of an artist’s book. The immersion into this program has an appeal to both the traditional arts student and those seeking specific teaching certification, or the non-traditional student who wishes to hone their studio skills.
