About This Class

In this class you will learn how to give your 2D characters a whole new life using the magic of paper!

This class will force you to think in color, layer and texture as you create 3D personalities. No prior knowledge or experience required, all skill levels and ages welcome! 

PLUS: Enroll and submit your process and final project by August 1st and you will automatically be entered in my Giveaway! I will be choosing my 3 favorite projects and those students will each receive an original paper piece and a print all signed and dated.
