Kirie!

Tuesday, March 23rd, 2010

Kirie is the Japanese art of paper cutting.

The process of Kirie art is as follows. First, the original skeleton picture is drawn on blank sheet of paper. Using a knife, the artist cuts the blank spaces out to create only outlines. Pieces of colored paper and then cut out and attached to the back to fill in the outlines. This creates an often colorful, delicate piece of art.

On Saturday, 3/20 the Rainy Day Studio was fortunate enough to host Shu Kubo. Shu Kubo is a Japanese kirie artist who is in the US at the behest of the Japanese embassy to promote Japanese culture. He gave us a talk, demonstrated how to do kirie and then let us try our hand at it!

New Mural!

Tuesday, March 23rd, 2010

So Art Club has created a sort of tradition in which departing seniors paint a mural to make their mark on the studio. The first was the Mountains mural by Teresa Silva which was painted right before the Gallery Opening in the Fall.

On Friday, 3/19, we painted Anna Lehr Mueser’s mural in the Rainy Day Studio. It’s lovely!

Anna's mural!
