Books & Paper Summer Session 5
Béatrice Coron and Colette Fu
Prep! Cut! Pop!!
This workshop will explore ways to cut stories in paper and make them pop up! Students will learn composition, stenciling, and paper cutting techniques and make paper dimensional with basic-to-complex pop-up techniques including platforms, rotating discs, and pull tabs. We’ll also cover adapting pop-up mechanisms to other materials (glass, cardboard, metal) along with possibilities using Photoshop, 3D programs, and animation. Students will learn to incorporate their own art into structures to create unique papercuts, pop-up books, cards, installations, and art works. All levels. Books studio.
