Everyone can be an artist and it is easier than you think! The traditional Chinese paper-cutting involves folding paper, cutting, and dying color. The result always comes out unexpectedly amazing and beautiful. It doesn't need any drawing skill and everyone will become a Master after 1.5 hours. We are going to study single, double, and quadruple folding method. There are pre-created patterns that we will be use to playing around a little and it will give everyone an idea how to create pretty patterns. You will be able to create your own beautiful patterns by using Chinese rice (xuan) paper and decide which folding method you want to use. Then, you are going to choose your favorite color combination to make the rice paper become colorful! At the end, we will glue our paper-cutting to an art board, and you are going to take your unique and beautiful artwork back home and use it to decorate your room.
