Papermaking


Andrea Peterson
PAPER 604 001
3 credit hours, 2 weeks
Lab Fee $100

Paper is an exciting and elusive art medium. Paper pulp can be transformed into sculptural works, drawings with pulp and unusual surface textures. It can allude to skin, metal, rock, or represent something entirely unique. In class, we will explore these possibilities as we examine other artists using pulp as a contemporary medium. Traditional and non-traditional processes, tailored to the capabilities of each fiber, will be explored.
Stretch your artistic and technical skills to create
unusual works of art.
