Using themes of nature and storytelling, participants are guided through the creation of images using simple materials and tools. Participants learn Scherenschnitte, a technique of traditional paper cutting with scissors. The class then transitions to a more complex image exploring the possibility of merging image with text. All materials are provided, however, please bring your own reference images, photos, books, or a Pinterest board, making sure they are large enough to draw from. Age: 18+.
