After such a great Paste Paper Making Class in January, John has been almost begged to teach another class as soon as possible.
Good News! The next class will be held on Saturday, February 5th at the Hoffman Center. Fabulous artwork was created at the previous class, and this is a great opportunity for you to try out a new medium. Scroll down for more class info, and a flyer is attached at the end. The last class filled up in under one week, so sign up early!!!
The art of making paste paper is centuries old, yet our creative minds keep finding ways to put a new spin on the process and discover new artistic uses for the papers.
In this class, participants will be using a mixture of paste and acrylic paint to create patterns, designs or any other images onto a heavy weight drawing paper. Tools, brushes, or fingers are used to move the paint around on wet paper creating beautiful multi-layered effects. The results can be art in itself, or can be used in many other forms, such as bookmaking, origami, collage, mixed-media artwork, gift boxes, greeting cards, and much more.
This class is suitable for teens and adults. No artistic background is required, only and open mind and an imagination. Paste paper making is enjoyable for anyone, from those who just doodle on paper to professional artists. You will be amazed with what you can create in your first class!
For those who already consider themselves artists, this is a great way to expand your current work in was that you may not have considered. Many novices have been thrilled with their creations, inspiring them to step to the point of being able to sell their artwork commercially.
Cost: $25, all materials will be provided.

Who: teens and adults of all art levels
When: Saturday, February 5th. 2:00 PM – 4:00 PM, registration is required
