Adult class -- Paper Cuts by Nature
Paper cut outs have been created for centuries as a popular folk art in Europe, China, Mexico and Israel. Henri Matisse expanded the use of the medium by covering whole walls with painted paper cut outs.

In this class, you will learn to do paper cuts by cutting shapes from nature out of colored papers with a kraft knife and applying them in layers, mixing a crisp cut edge with the shallow relief of 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" paper cut to take home and materials to make another paper cut art piece on your own.  

This class is geared for ages 14 and above.  No prior experience in art or paper cuts 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 artworks.
