“What did you do as a child that made the hours pass like minutes? Here is the key to your earthly pursuits.” — Carl Jung
It’s fun to play with paper dolls! (It’s even more fun to see grown men play with paper dolls, which happened in our household recently.)
In this class you will create set of stand-up paper dolls and a unique, interactive artist book using cereal boxes as your substrate. Your paper dolls will fit into the pockets of the folded book structure, which becomes the backdrop for your characters when folded out. Fun!
You will create your characters based on a fairy tale, a fable, your family, or your imagination. (Can’t draw? No problem! We’ll spend the first day doing fun drawing exercises to build your confidence and get your ideas flowing.)
We’ll also explore other ways to house your dolls, including altering an old book:
And on the last day you will receive tips and tricks for photographing your 3D project by Guest Teacher Steve Sonheim.

Okay okay! I can’t stand it! Must sign up, even though I’m moving at the end of the month. I may not be able to work during that week, but I really want to do this, and get the lesson from Steve. Yay!
