Understanding the historical and social context of a medium is critical to art making. The class will start with a brief survey of paper as a historically significant medium used in ancient China, and its presence in Asian contemporary art and design, specifically in China, Japan, and Korea.

The survey will give you a broad understanding of the evolving role of paper in artistic expression, inspiring you to step out of the preconception of what paper is and can do. Two sessions of hands-on papermaking will allow for open-minded experimentation and play. Participate in a friendly culminating critique session so that you can practice articulating your work, a key component of contemporary art making.
