Learn observational drawing techniques and then develop projects from imagination!

Cut Paper Collage – Grace Flott
Saturday | 4/13-5/11 | 9:00-11:30 A.M. | Ages 11-13

See the world through color and shape in this cut, ripped, and shredded paper exploration! Working with a costumed figure model for inspiration, learn to quickly capture the gesture and proportions of the human body. With short poses and longer multi-figure creations, our drawings will become the roadmaps for value and color paper shapes. Learn to stretch the limits of our medium and discover collage techniques using magazines, newspapers, and more. The final results are cut paper collages of abstracted but descriptive color blocks. Weekly demonstrations and basic color theory exercises will guide students toward greater self-expression.
