Independent Projects (2 – 3 projects

Students will maintain a journal or workshop folder and present it with their final other work for evaluation and discussion with the instructor. Students will receive a Printed Matter Cap and may join the Facebook group Language into Art https://www.facebook.com/groups/197813450347877/ or perhaps a soon to be formed Printed Matter closed group from which we could make a Facebook book.
