Paper Cutting and Beyond- New!

Take a look at how paper cutting originated and how it’s being used today. We’ll learn about cutting tools and different ways to use them to make intricate and precise cutwork. The art of paper cutting is thousands of years old and still exciting. Cutting is an approachable way to use paper as a primary medium for art, instead of as a substrate surface. In addition to paper, other materials that can be cut using similar techniques will be explored. We’ll also learn to use cut paper with metal leaf and as a stencil for paint as well as cyanotype. This will be an exploratory class and students can expect to leave with a variety of small pieces, samples and tests.
