Berkshire artist Erica Manville will lead a workshop for adults and older teens on altered books — to repurpose old books to make them into glorious interactive pieces of art. Using scissors, glue, and miscellaneous materials we will use creative writing prompts to inspire our altered book pieces of art. Be ready for hands on artistic fun! Materials will be provided.

Erica Manville is a teacher at IS183 Art School and vice-chair of the North Adams Public Arts Commission, which she helped to found, and the third grade teacher at Pine Cobble School — a longtime teacher with a Masters degree in education from MCLA and a background in the arts with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Alfred University, ahe has been working in North Adams for a decade, both at BART Charter School and North Adams Public Schools. In that time, she has formed strong partnerships with MCLA, Williams College, Kidspace at Mass MoCA and more.

You can find all of the ArtWeek Berkshires events we have listed, here in the BTW events calendar.

By the Way Berkshires is a digital magazine exploring creative life and community — art and performance, food and the outdoors — and I’m writing it for you, with local voices, because I’ve gotten to know this rich part of the world as a writer and journalist, and I want to share it with you.

If you’d like to see the website grow, you can join me for a few dollars a month, enough for a cup of coffee and a cider doughnut. Members get access to extra stories and multimedia, itineraries a bookmark tool. Let me know what you're looking for, and we’ll explore together.
