"Unique Paper Masks"

In this easy and creatively inspiring class you will create a unique dimensional paper mask using folding and scoring techniques. With only scissors, glue and your imagination, you will craft white watercolor paper into a three dimensional work of art! You will learn simple techniques for folding, cutting, scoring and bending to create wonderfully textural and highly dimensional art pieces.

Skill Level: All Levels; Class Limit: 16; Materials Fee: $10 

"Unique Paper Masks" is taught by Sarah Gayle, of SolaLuna Studios in Toledo, who creates “up cycled” products by making something old into something new using clothing, neckties or paper products which are incorporated into mixed media art, apparel, hats, note cards and fairy houses.
