Cut Paper Art

Whenever I teach my students about negative space, I love teaching them about cut paper art.  Beginner art students to advance art students really see the importance of positive and negative space when cutting apart a piece of paper.  Right now my students are working on their own designs, so I decided to create a simple one too.  I have a couple sprigs of baby's breath in my studio, so I took a photo of it and used it to cut out the negative space.

Welcome to my blog!  Here I will post tutorials, artwork and other ramblings.  To start off this blog, I'll be posting my artwork that I create as I participate in the 30 day challenge starting October 1 (see the button to Traci Bunker's blog).  Each day I will attempt to create art for one hour (outside of what I do as an art teacher) and post what I'm creating as well as what I have found inspiring.  It should be fun!  Comment below if you are also participating.  I would love to see what you are creating.
