In this workshop, students will be introduced to the artform of papercut; where images are created through careful cutting and removal of paper. During the 4-hour workshop, students will have the opportunity to create a papercut piece from start to finish.
We will discuss transferring visual information to a linear format, laying out a drawing, varying cutting methods and techniques, positive and negative space, and ways of finalizing the papercut with color.

About the Instructor
Robyn Glass writes:
I have been drawing and painting since I was very young. I was fortunate to have parents and grandparents who encouraged me artistically and allowed me to pursue this interest. In high school, my Art teacher coordinated a trip to Europe to see the historic and monumental Art museums of the world, which was a pivotal point for me. I studied art in college and earned my BFA in Studio Art with emphasis on printmaking and painting from UT Arlington in 2002. I had been working with children since high school, and found that teaching was something I loved, so I earned my certification in Art Education in 2007 and I have been teaching art professionally for about 12 years.
I have shown and sold my work at various locations around Texas, including The Upstairs Gallery of Arlington, and in B/CS: Binary Space, The Frame Gallery, The Brazos Center, the Bryan Visual Arts Center, DeGallery, Living Water Pottery Studio, The Arts Council, and others. I have also designed dinnerware and textiles for MDesign Studio out of Austin, TX, with designs sold to companies such as Corelle, Dollar Tree, Tuesday Morning, Homegoods, and TJ Maxx.
Additionally, I have been teaching workshops in watercolor and drawing for adult students since 2010. I am a member of the Visual Arts Society of Bryan-College Station. I paint mainly in watercolor, but I enjoy all 2-D media.
Recently, I have been exploring the art of paper-cutting, and rediscovering my love of colored pencil. I am inspired by the works of John Singer Sargent, Andrew Wyeth, Chuck Close, Gerhard Richter, and countless others. People and faces are my main subjects. I choose subjects for different reasons, but I often seek to portray a sense of introspection. Like many figurative painters, I am drawn to inconsequential moments in life. I work to try to capture what might be otherwise unnoticed, momentary beauty.
