Showcase Exhibition of "How To" books: "How To" Book Making is a Side x Side program for first graders at Riverton elementary school. Students have been learning about the history of book making and how early book makers used paste paper as a way to decorate their books. Side x Side teaching artists Jill Osgood and Sarah Boyden Herboldscheimer taught students how to draw a self-portrait, paint paste paper covers and glue in spines to create single sheet flag books for their "How To" writing assignment. The handmade books will be exhibited and shared at the showcase event.
