This is an advanced class that focuses on developing pop-ups and moveable mechanisms for books. Topics covered will include the design and assembly of a variety of structures including changing scenes, pop-up theaters and towers, and flipping panels, as well as structures that employ pull tabs and rotating wheels to control moveable elements. We will also explore strategies for the development of content that utilize these structures to good effect. Students will be introduced to new structures on a weekly basis with the goal of completing a finished book that combines serious creative content with fun and playful 3-dimensional structures and moving parts.
