Book artist, Stacy Gabriel, will be visiting with our 1st graders!

Stacy Gabriel is an educator and book artist, working with students in the Twin Cities for 21 years.  Currently she teaches Fifth grade at Harambee Elementary.  She holds a Book Arts Certificate from Hamline University and the MN Center for Book Arts.  The best part of making books with kids is seeing student’s reactions to various book structures – often breaking the mold of what they consider books.

For this book arts experience, students will create a book structures, learning bookmaking terminology and the basics of folding various book forms including the Accordion Fold.
