[BKARTS] Acclaimed master papercutting Artist Béatrice Coron at Columbia Center for Book & Paper Arts

The Columbia College Chicago Center for Book and Paper Arts is proud to
present acclaimed master papercutting Artist Béatrice Coron.

When we think of paper cutting, we generally drift back in time to our
childhoods, when we folded and cut little paper dolls holding hands.
Béatrice¹s paper cuttings are unlike anything you¹ve ever seen; beautifully
intricate and delicate designs reveal landscapes, cityscapes, animals,
people and much, much more.

Please join us for a lecture and class with the talented Béatrice Coron!

reinvents itself and invests in the future. The design stresses the many
ideas of connections in commuting and in states of mind. Please join us as

Paper cutting is a simple yet sophisticated art form that has been practiced
in many times and cultures. In this workshop you will explore beyond the
basics of papercutting through a wide variety of techniques, including the
use of positive and negative space utilizing silhouettes to create powerful
imagery; composition of colored papers in assemblage; printing on paper and
textiles from paper cut pochoirs; and dimensional papercutting. You will
create original illustrations, a stencil for creating multiples, and receive
advice on paper and tricks of the trade. Both beginners and advanced
students are welcome.
