In this one-time class we will practice the special folding needed to create a six pointed snowflake. We will learn the difference between geometric and organic shapes and practice using them in our artwork. We will explore the art of papercutting both in Japan and Mexico while we work. And we will brainstorm ways to display our finished paper creations. Sometimes our artwork is a disaster, and we learn, recycle, and start again.

We will understand symmetry, and the difference between organic and geometric shapes. We will get lots of practice cutting tricky shapes, and will learn planning and hypothesizing skills.
*round coffee filters. It is especially helpful if your parents can iron these flat in advance. We might use up to 20 of these! *a good pair of scissors, like Fiskars brand *pencil *bowl to catch your snippets, which will go everywhere *one piece of office or school paper, for drawing practice shapes
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.

For this class it is helpful if the paper coffee filters can be ironed flat by parents in advance. It is also nice to iron them after the cutting part is complete. This is optional, of course, but makes for a lovely finished piece of art. Your Learner will be using scissors. I recommend the best pair you have on hand, but the project works well with quality safety scissors, like those made by Fiskars.
