Paper Arts

In the Paper Arts class, students learn how to creatively make and use paper.  They use an endless assortment of traditional and non-traditional fibers, dye, pigment or add various unlikely colors and objects, apply numerous "couching" and drying techniques, and finally, learn to push the limit of what paper can mean and do.

The course is taught on alternating years by visiting professor Jeff Rathermel, who is also the artistic director for the Minnesota Center for Book Arts.
