Making with Paper: Ages 5-8

Elementary students will engage in creation, masquerade, and light exploration during this 8- week course. The common thread will be the most humble of materials- paper! How can we transform it 2-dimensionally and 3- dimensionally? How can we give it depth? During our eight weeks, students will create jumbo painted paper collages, build a layered paper mask, and explore light through the creation of shadow puppets. Inspiration will be channeled through modern, contemporary, and international folk art examples. M 3:45- 4:45pm with Emma, 8 Weeks, $240.

We’ll work big and we’ll work small with many different drawing media. 8 Weeks, $240.
