GET Workshop: "Playing with Paper: Illuminating, Engineering and Reimagining Paper Art" for kids ages 8 - 18, November 11, 6 - 8:30pm info
Join the Gifted Education Team and local nationally renowned paper artist and author Helen Hiebert for a workshop in which we create wonders from paper. We'll practice origami as we create magic window stars and other stunning light catchers.
Parents of gifted kids often ask how they can help their kids meet others with similar interests or ways of thinking and feeling. GET activity workshops are the perfect way to come together and explore art and science with other like-minded kids. We are always amazed at the sense of comaraderie that seems to magically appear at our workshops. But, then again, we know that connecting kids through their passions is the first step toward forging new friendships!
Helen Hiebert is the author of Playing With Paper: Illuminating, Engineering and Reimagining Paper Art, as well as three other books on papermaking and paper art. She lives with her family in Edwards and runs a hand papermaking studio in Red Cliff, CO.
