Draw, fold, build, sculpt. From small and intricate origami and, yes, even paper airplanes, to giant towering structures and papier mache sculptures, you'll explore all the things artists can do with or on paper -- including making paper from scratch! Come ready to be amazed at what a powerful and versatile medium simple paper can be, whether the paper is for "hosting" the art or becomes the art itself, in both two and three dimensions.
