PAPER CUTTING Online

PAPER CUTTING Online

Start with a cultural sampling of paper cutting traditions around the world or just one part of it (Asia, Mesoamerica, Mexico, West Africa). Then make a paper cut of the current Asian zodiac calendar animal or something else.  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.
