Explore centuries of silhouette and découpage and experiment to find your own style

A very poetical technique with quite a history, from ancient China to the Pays d’En-Haut in Switzerland, sought after by numerous contemporary artists.

We will play with examples of many origins and various tools. This is a very specific and graphic technique, where you learn to plan your work, draw and cut with an eye for the negative space.

There are many applications possible: cards, calendars, works to be framed, all the way to illustration and, why not, shadow theaters!

For all ages and levels, beginners are welcome.
Materials will be provided for your first course. A list of art supplies will be discussed according to your needs.
