Paper cutting is now becoming widespread in many forms. Papercut art can be framed, flat, in shadow boxes, or used for greeting cards – the sky’s the limit. Even if you are not a beginner, this class will allow you the space and time to accomplish new things!
We will look at the expert pieces of this craft called “Scherenschitte” in Switerland, by artists such as Esther Gerber and Geertjie Aalders, as well as contemporary themes, Chinese examples, and work by Kara Walker.
We will be using Xacto knives, embroidery scissors, cutting mats, and a selection of papers.
The image shown is part of a large-scale paper cutting by Kara Walker called The Emancipation Approximation.
This class has a limited enrollment of eight. Students will be required to wear surgical, KN95, or N95 masks and our classrooms will be set up for optimal social distancing. Required masks will be available in the main office if needed.
