JumpstART – Papercutting: Valentine’s Day Edition

Fleisher’s JumpstART Workshops are single-session workshops that provide an introduction to our rich offerings and specialized studios. Led by our renowned teaching artists, the workshops are a welcoming and fun way to engage with art and share the experience with family and friends. You will walk away with a new understanding of a creative medium and an original artwork! All supplies are included.

Valentine cards date back to the early 1800’s. Inspired by German folk art, these cards were designed with pin pricks or to look lacy. Over time the designs evolved to full out papercuts. In this session, you will see some historical examples and create your own cards using either templates or your very own design!
