Pop-Up Mechanics: Expressive Movements in Paper
Tuition: $160 | Materials: $10
Join artist and designer Stephanie McCollough for a day of kinetic experiments using cut paper! More info...
Stephanie will begin this class with demonstrations on how to create various pop-up layer types including even and uneven parallel layers, v-folds, and lifters, noting the functions of each technique. Students will learn how to work with these types of layers separately and in combination with one another to achieve multiple options for structure and movement.
Students will spend the second half of the class exploring how these movements in paper can add intention, humor, poignancy, or other expressive dimensions to a piece. Using provided papers and collage materials, as well as drawings and favorite papers brought from home, students will create compositions that will be animated either by following a guide provided by the instructor to create a pop-up configuration, or by improvising from what was learned in the first half of class. All students will leave with a delightful moving piece to learn from and enjoy.
