About This Class

4ba81ef5

Paper sculpture can be used in illustration, framed as fine art, or a fun craft to teach children. Students will be introduced to the basic techniques for working three-dimensionally with paper, learn how to utilize their sketches, and transfer and cut various shapes from colored paper. We’ll also explore methods for forming, shaping, lifting, arranging and gluing the shapes into a strong composition.

Our project for this class will be to create a relief of a simple flower. Together we’ll go through the process using your own sketch or the one provided. No drawing experience is required. This class is open to all skill levels. Join class today and let’s get our fingers sticky!
