Workshop: Cutting Edges with Béatrice Coron

October 21, 2017
9:00 AM to 3:00 PM
Multi-Purpose Room, Wishcamper Center, Portland
Beatrice Caron's papercut

During this intensive class of serious fun, participants will discover the incredible variety of applications of this art form from fine arts to public art commissions. Through different exercises students will learn how to adapt reference images into papercuts and produce works as different as black and white scenes, color collage, pop-ups, wearables, and stencils. Cutting different papers and experimenting with scale, we will keep an open mind to adapt them to other materials and explore new territories. Tips, tricks and resources will be provided. No experience necessary.

Béatrice Coron is an artist specialized in cutting stories used in artist books, installations, and public art. Born in France she lived in Egypt, Mexico and China before moving to New York City. Her cut designs are made of paper, glass or metal from small to monumental. Her work is in collections such as the Metropolitan Museum, NY, the Getty, CA and le Getty, MN.
