Books & Paper B Summer Session 6

Books & Paper Summer Session 6
August 9-21, 2020
Béatrice Coron & 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, three-dimensional 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. Code 06B
