My students are currently designing a paper lantern that is inspired by a season. I am having them approach it like a design challenge! In addition to the imagery of their cut designs, the students must also design the lantern’s structure – size, shape and style. They must consider design ideas for opacity, light flow, layers and sculptural properties.
As part of their research for design inspiration and possibilities, I directed them to check out these artists who work with cut paper. The photos above are their designs in progress. Check back in a couple of weeks to see their finished work.
