LIBROS is New Mexico’s Book Arts Guild offering a variety of inspiration for both traditional and experimental artist’s books. We hold regular meetings on the 1st Saturday of the month, as well as annual and special exhibits. We welcome new members and guests – please see our Calendar page a list of upcoming meetings.
Our December program will be hosted by Elaine Lewis, a local artist, bookseller, and life coach who specializes in custom popup cards for significant birthdays, anniversaries, and other holidays. In her workshop she will introduce seven or eight basic pop-up techniques and then give us the opportunity to produce some fun cards that could be created for the holidays. Elaine will supply cardstock but members should bring markers, stamps, and any decorative embellishment they think they might need.
We will also be collecting art supplies that will be sorted and donated to a selected group of children for Christmas. Here is the list of possible things to include - pretty gift bags, colored paper (scraps are okay), small scissors, crayons, watercolors, glue sticks, ribbon...We will not have time to organize the materials at the meeting but anyone who would like to participate in doing that sometime later in the week should notify Mita. Micaela and others will divide the donations into appropriate gift bags later in the week.
Note: The scheduled program with Marilyn Stablein had to be changed because of her immediate move to Portland.
