Student Spotlight: Artist and actor Emma Mouzon '18

Once arriving at Dartmouth, Mouzon immediately knew she wanted to enroll in a studio art class. During her first winter term, she signed up for “Sculpture I,” which not only forced her to leave her room and venture into the frigid temperatures, but also “encouraged [her] to embrace [her] more creative side again,” Mouzon said.

No, it is not a three-headed dog you will need to lull to sleep or a madwoman locked away, but Dartmouth’s full-service Book Arts Workshop, which allows students and community members to handcraft invitations, birthday and holiday cards, flyers and even entire books. The workshop offerings include printing presses dating from the 19th century to the mid-20th century, a letterpress and bookbinding studio.
