The Aegean Sea has a high salt content; in this water the human body can float effortlessly. Aside from the sting in one’s eyes when renegade droplets run down the face, the salt cannot be felt until one is out of the water, baking in the sun. Whilst laying out sunning on a beach towel, the salt dries on the skin forming little granules that are easily detected by finger tips.

This course taught by Robert Mueller and Lauren Garber Lake at the Skopelos Foundation of the Arts will use the island of Skopelos and Greek culture as a starting point for artist’s books, drawings and prints.
We will emphasize sketchbook and idea development as well as introduce students to basic bookbinding techniques and collagraphic printmaking techniques. Students will be intimately immersed in island culture through visits with local artists, hiking, boat trips, visits to local points of interest, folk-dancing, cooking demonstrations, and more.
