Morning: Storytelling and mixed media: In this class, we will explore ways to tell a story using a variety of media including bookmaking, puppetry, drama, painting, sculpture, and comic books. We will look at the stories that artists have told us through the history of art up until today.
Afternoon: Just Paper: Fold, cut, roll, glue, tear, bend, and make paper. It is one of the most basic building materials for art making, and there is little that you can’t do with it. In this class we will try and see just how far we can go with a piece of paper. Students will have a chance to make their own paper, marbleize paper, learn classic origami techniques, build masks out of paper, learn some bookmaking techniques, and try many more experimental approaches that work with paper. Throughout the class we will be looking at classic traditional approaches as well as contemporary ideas. You’ll never look at a piece of paper the same way again.
