3D Painting with Paper - Ages 12 - 16 St George & Sutherland Community College

3D Painting with Paper - Ages 12 - 16

The goal of this course is to inspire students to explore learning paper crafts and enjoy creating handmade paper art. Painting, traditionally uses paint as the principal art medium. Three-dimensional painting with paper is an innovative art form using only paper and glue. Paper is an incredibly versatile art medium that can be used to create shapes and add texture to artworks, where pieces of multicoloured paper can be creatively combined to compose a picture. Paper can also be transformed into decorative three-dimensional objects employing crafting techniques such as quilling and origami. These objects are excellent components for constructing three-dimensional paper artworks.

Paper quilling and origami are highly inventive techniques used in crafting paper. Paper quilling involves rolling paper strips to form coils and shapes and assembling them with glue to create beautiful embellishments. Origami is a Japanese paper folding technique to construct 3D objects from a sheet of square paper. Combing your creativity with these paper crafts techniques, you can create your own masterpiece. All tools and materials will be provided.
