One way Clermont College Library supports our Art Department is by providing books on arts and crafts. We house books on drawing and painting as well as many hands-on crafts. The most recent course the art department added, Fundamentals of Metal Clay Jewelry, has resulted in some beautiful work by the students. I’ve had the opportunity to take Fundamental Concepts of Art and a course on felt making. In the fundamentals class, I created a book from handmade paper and learned printing techniques. The class is designed to give students a chance to work with two and three dimensional art.
If you’re a student preparing to take an art class or just want to try something new, we have books to inspire and instruct.
