Whimsical Snowfolk Collage with Cass Collins

Students will love creating whimsical winter characters that can be given their own personality and style. Using tissue paper and liquid medium, students sculpt/create fun, 3D works of art. This project is especially great for the holiday season but is suitable all winter long.  This technique can be used to create artwork with many other themes, such as spring/flowers, animals, and more. Contact Cass to discuss other themes or to see finished examples of the Snowfolk artwork.
