Humans have been making maps for thousands of years: it is an urge some of us can't resist. Maps guide us, record our journeys and tell our personal stories while enchanting us with their colors, decor and textures. In this class we will make maps of our lives with gentle direction and guidance. We will talk about how to illustrate our current and past journeys with delicious inks, paints, pens and pencils.

Making maps of your life leads to both wonderful art and self-discovery. This class is about making a book to contain six pop-up maps of your life experiences. The book structure is designed by me, easy to construct and will contain a small and intimate atlas of yourself.

Techniques covered include both traditional and non-traditional approaches to mapmaking, folding and using pop-up pages, and constructing a book structure of my own design.
