BASC Spring '12: Pop-Ups

The Bronxville After School Club (BASC) started Spring Classes last week. I am teaching a new art class that focuses mostly on pop-ups. Pop-ups have always intrigued me, so I am excited about learning and teaching students how to create all types of pop-ups. During the first class students learned how to make a Step. Although it was difficult at first to cut and fold the paper properly to create a crisp Step many students quickly got the hang of it. I was impressed that some students even took the time to create a scene around their pop-up. Each student got a blank book which they will fill weekly with the pop-up they learned that day. By the end of the course each student will have made their very own pop-up book.
