Altered Books

Kimberly J.B. Smith – LRAA June Presenter

Creative people find what speaks to them often after exploring many different mediums. For mixed media artist Kimberly J. B. Smith, a former elementary and high school art educator, she found her creative voice when she discovered altered books. After much research she began experimenting and found a technique that spoke to her.

For the meeting, Kimberly will have a powerpoint presentation showing her work and discussing the process and materials used in making altered books.  She will also demonstrate making a basic book and will pass around a sample book for members to see up close.

Join the Lakes Region Art Association’s monthly meeting, June 19th at 7pm at the Woodside Building Conference Center, Taylor Community, 435  Union Ave., Laconia, NH. The meeting is open to the public.


Around the Lakes Reception was a Success!
