Papel Picado, Kiri-e Jianzhi, Scherenschnitte, Wycinanki.  These are some of the words describing the art of paper cutting.  From simple banners to elaborate cut pieces seen in galleries and museums, paper cutting has been a popular form of folk art  for over 2,000 years.  In this 2 day workshop, we will venture into this folk art by drawing simple images on paper, utilizing x-acto knives to cut on and around the lines to bring your images to life.
