Paper Arts – Silhouette & Diorama

Levels: All

Offered: July 8th and 9th, 9am - 3:30pm

Instructor: Dana Peters, MFA

Experiment with paper in ways you never imagined possible! In this weekend workshop you will create two and three dimensional artworks as you think beyond paper’s traditional uses. We will explore conceptual implications in art and culture, and learn methods of manipulation such as intricate paper cut outs and dioramas. Students will be introduced to contemporary art work by famous paper artists such as Swoon, Adrien Coburn, Andy Byers and Kara Walker. Students will leave this class with two cohesive and thought provoking paper works.
