What tools do artists use to make creative work? Many artists use artistic journals to sketch, reflect, plan, experiment and explore. Art 1 students started one today, in the format of an altered book.
To make an altered book, you start with a discarded book -- in this case donated by the Mansfield University library. The book is then "upcycled" into a work if art, full of the artists response to creative prompts and original ideas.
