Central High Art Department Hosts Professor for Artist’s Demo

Mr. Joseph Lappie, Art Department Chair at St. Ambrose University, recently visited Mr. DiGioia’s Illustration and Design class for Creative Arts Academy students at Central High to give an informative workshop on the subject of Book Arts. After giving a brief introduction on his career as an exhibiting artist and educator, Mr. Lappie offered historical perspective on the techniques of letterpress and book making, and then gave a demonstration on a Japanese book-binding technique. Students in the class then made their own artist’s books.
