About This Class


In this class, we’ll exercise our creativity. We’ll draw with scissors to create unique paper cut-outs and explore shapes and colors to find new ideas. We’ll assemble everything by hand into a collage and later digitize it and fill it with details in Adobe Illustrator.

If you’ve never tried this before you’ll be surprised how different it is from starting your art projects with just a pen and a paper. 

This is one of my favorite art exercises that always sparks joy and creativity even when I’m left with no ideas or motivation. It’s a very simple and yet very effective technique that you can explore and include in your everyday art projects.

So whether you're interested in learning this technique or you’re an illustrator or designer looking for an interesting way to create something new and unexpected, this class will be perfect for you.

This is a beginner-friendly class. And all you need is just a very basic knowledge of Adobe Illustrator.

If you’re ready, let’s start.
