MCBA Field Trips

Bring your students to Minnesota Center for Book Arts (MCBA) for a hands-on art-making experience. Students can get their hands wet in the paper studio, create unique book structures, or print their own letters using the printing press.

MCBA’s teaching artists work with students of all ages, with the ability to host up to 2 classes totaling 60 students simultaneously in our studios. We can also bring books arts to your school or community group. Projects and lesson plans are structured to make it easy for teachers to integrate classroom curriculum with students into their projects after the book arts experience.
