Ages 6 – 8
What does The Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle and artist Henry Matisse’s famous work, The Snail, have in common? Both pictures are made up of colorful cut paper. In this class we will explore creating colorful papers using paint and a variety of unconventional tools and techniques. Making these papers is all about the process and having fun. We will then use this wonderful paper pallet to create images. As a starting point, I will share some different ways in which to create a paper garden and some of the creatures that live there, using scissors. Everyone’s flowers, bugs and butterflies will be brought together to create a beautiful mural that will be displayed within the art center. In addition, you may choose to continue with a garden or make something different with the papers to create a piece of art to take home. There is no end to the possibilities. Wherever your creativity takes you, you may find yourself using scissors to paint rather than a brush and be pleasantly surprised at the results!
