Papercutting with the Boys and Girls Club


I had the honor to work with some fantastic kids at the Boys and Girls Club in my home town of South Portland.

I gave a brief talk about the history of papercutting and passed around some authentic pieces from around the world (papel picado, Jian Jhi, silhouette, etc) then the kids got to create their own original papercut. There were almost no rules, so they really got to express their creativity.

Here are some highlights of the two-day workshop
