UNM-LA Community Education Offers Paper Cutting: Beyond Snowflakes

UNM-LA News:

The University of New Mexico-Los Alamos (UNM-LA) Community Education department will offer “Paper Cutting: Beyond Snowflakes,” Saturday, Nov. 16, 1-4 p.m., in room 614 on the UNM-LA campus.

“Paper cutting is a traditional art in many cultures,” says UNM-LA Community Education Director Eva Artschwager. “In this class we will move beyond the paper cutting we associate with the snowflakes we all made in elementary school. Students will learn both folded and flat-paper methods for creating truly unique cut paper designs. It’s amazing to see the complexity and beauty that can be created with this simple technique.”

The class is taught by Community Education Instructor Sequoia Edwards. Edwards earned her BFA in ceramics and has studied, practiced and taught art for more than 20 years. In addition to her skills in the arts, Edwards has studied theology and also teaches computer skills to underserved communities across New Mexico.

“Sequoia Edwards is another fine example of the creative talent we have on our Community Education faculty here at UNM-LA,” Artschwager said. “Students in her classes always come away energized and inspired.”

Cost for the class is $45 and includes materials. For more information, contact Eva Artschwager at 505-663-3410 or via email at eartschw@unm.edu.
