This class introduces students to creating with paper, glue and water-based paints in 2- and 3-dimensional forms. Each week, the instructor will provide a selection of materials and offer suggestions on their use. These suggestions will be based on a theme, such as color; or a prompt that invites an artistic response. Students will be encouraged to develop projects following their own curiosity and creative impulse. Studio sessions are collaborative and congenial. All levels of art experience are welcome. A $20 materials fee is due to the instructor in the first session.
