This is a special FREE online class presented by KidPass Live Stage (https://kidp.as/live). KidPass Live Stage is a free livestream series that is open for the community and showcases many of the incredible classes and instructors on KidPass.
In this course, students will learn basic pop-up techniques and make pop-up cards.
No prior knowledge is needed, just creativity!
Students will cut, fold, and glue paper to create a standing Pop-up System (examples of fold will be provided in class) . This is a fun 3D project where students will experiment with a variety of paper (sketchbook, card stock, bond paper, colourful construction paper..) and practice cutting and folding to create a pop-up card that "pops-up" when opened.
We will focus on the "scoring" technique and on learning a few basic ways how to make these cards. I will demonstrate each of the techniques and students will follow.
This course will focus on counter folds and V-folds.
We will learn how to use the "box" method to make :
Class I - Christmas tree,
Class II- Christmas presents and Santa
Class III- House
those 3-4 pop-up cards will make a little story that we will put together into a book which we will decorate and draw to finish the story.
