Throughout the afternoon, students will gain a basic understanding of the tools and techniques used to transform a flat sheet of paper into various 3-dimensional structures. Everyone will also leave with a copy of the calendar and a curated selection of papers from around the world, as well as everything needed to make each of the monthly projects featured in the calendar. Your year of paper art begins now!
