In the ever-growing digitization of culture, paper becomes increasingly of a sidelined material in our youths' lives. In Frederic Church’s lifetime paper was the form of all communication; it was exotic, precious, incredible, and a material that drove so much childhood play and adventure. We will delve deeply into the history of paper, take a field trip, borrow from the 19th century and from many cultures around the world to make decorative pulp papers, paper dolls, paper cutouts, papier-mâché, pop-up books, kites, decoupage, and so much more. This week-long program will turn paper into magic and create marvelous skills.
