Explore the sculptural and decorative potentials of paper. Artist Sonya Blesofsky demonstrates the techniques of paper folding, cutting, and stretching to show how paper can be a sculptural medium. Make functional or sculptural works of art—such as pop-ups, scale models, luminaries, or abstract sculptures—inspired by architectural structures in the Museum.
