Elementary students will engage in creation, masquerade, and light exploration during this 8 week course. The common thread will be the most humble of materials- paper! How can we transform it 2-dimensionally and 3- dimensionally? How can we give it depth? During our eight weeks, students will create jumbo painted paper collages, build a layered paper mask, and explore light through the creation of shadow puppets. Inspiration will be channeled through modern, contemporary, and international folk art examples.
