Adult class -- Nature Artscapes
Combine art and science. Spend some time at the Museum. Step out of the holiday rush for a day and make wonderful gifts for friends, family or yourself, while you examine objects from the Museum collections and learn a new art form.
You will learn to cut shapes from nature out of colored papers with a kraft knife and apply them in layers, mixing a crisp cut edge with overlapped shapes. Choose your subjects from specimens provided by the museum's collections. At the end of the class, you will have created a 12"X12" an original paper cut-out to take home and materials to make another paper cut-out art piece on your own.
This class is geared for adults and older children, ages 14 and above. No prior experience in art or paper cut-outs is required. The class fee includes lunch and most materials.
Mary Sundstrom's experience encompasses art instruction, fine arts printer/printmaker, book illustrator with 17 children's book titles and an Audubon field guide series, as well as numerous exhibit illustrations for the New Mexico Museum of Natural History & Science. She has lately had several shows of her paper cut out artworks.
