Creating Tunnel Books

Grade Level:

In this detailed lesson, Artist, Printmaker and Educator Barbara Mason demonstrates how to make tunnel books in two ways – from an original piece of your artwork or from coloring book drawings or artwork you cut out and assemble. Either way, you’ll learn how to create a simple yet dynamic “3-D” type work that combines individual layers and graphics elements into artwork you can cut out and paste together. Once completed, you’ll have a work of art that will make you want to create more! Be sure to think about ways you might tell a story about your experience during the Pandemic of 2020. There are two complete demonstrations here, with slightly different wrinkles in final construction.
