World paper cutting folk art

PAPER CUTTING Online

Start with a cultural sampling of celebrations throughout Asia, and then make a paper cut of the current zodiac calendar animal.  Using just paper, scissors, and glue, exercise important small motor skills, the concept of positive and negative space, and the almost-lost arts of cutting and gluing.  You'll get started and can finish at your own pace and make so many more after watching a full demonstration.
