The Power of Paper

Class # 16   Grades: 4- 5- 6

Class Overview

In an increasingly digital world, we hear the word “paperless” on what seems to be a daily basis. However, paper is about more than just homework and  files and documents. Paper is also about art, and about communication! In this fun summer course, you will make art and create meaning out of one of the world’s greatest inventions: paper. You’ll have a chance to make your own paper from scratch (it might get a bit messy!) and learn about different paper folding arts. You will learn how to use nature to enhance your creativity and your art. We’ll even make wearable paper styles and have our own fashion shoot. Finally, to celebrate the last week of class, we will make (and smash!) our own piñatas!
