The Las Cruces Museum of Art is hosting a workshop on Islamic geometric papercutting with artist Mindy Shapiro from 5:30 - 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, April 6. This workshop is brought to you through a collaboration between the Museum of Art and the Guild of American Papercutters and will be hosted on the Zoom platform. 

Spaces are limited and registrations for the workshop must be made by Saturday, March 27. Supplies are being provided and will be available for pickup at the Museum of Art. This workshop is intended for adults ages 18 and up and will involve the use of a hobby knife to cut a design from a paper template. Please contact Bryan Lee at BLee@las-cruces.org for more information or to register.

Papercutting is an ancient art form with original papercuts dating back to the 6th century in China. Since that time, artisans have used paper, scissors, and knives to create objects both ornamental and functional. Perhaps you made a snowflake in grade school or have seen silhouettes. These are forms of papercutting.

Mindy Shapiro, MA, is a Papercutting, Zentangle® and book artist whose groundbreaking creativity, intricate designs and use of color distinguish her as an artist.

The Museum of Art is currently closed due to the public health order. The museum is located at 491 N. Main Street and is accessible from RoadRUNNER Transit Route 1 Stop 36. For additional information, and updates on reopening, visit the website at: http://las-cruces.org/museums or follow us on Facebook and Instagram @LCMuseums.
