This introductory hand-papermaking workshop invites participants to use a range of cut-out techniques as the basis for original paper compositions. Led by Amy Jacobs, Studio Collaborator and Education Manager at Dieu Donné Papermill, this workshop introduces Matisse’s cut-outs and uses recent work by contemporary artists Jessica Stockholder, Kate Shepherd, Jim Hodges, Polly Apfelbaum, and other artists-in-residence at Dieu Donné as inspiration. Participants experiment with the effects of cut shapes, collage, and stenciling.
Workshop is free, but limited to 25 people. Each workshop runs for 75 to 90 minutes. Reserve free tickets online. Please sign up for only one session per person.
Studios are free, interactive spaces offering drop-in programs and artist- and educator-led workshops to visitors of all ages in conjunction with an exhibition or a topic related to modern and contemporary art. These experiences complement looking and talking about works of art in the galleries, allowing for engagement with art in participatory, creative ways. Visitors can experiment, play, and create as they make connections between their lives, their own creativity, and the processes and materials of modern and contemporary art. Learn more
