Introduction to Jewish Papercutting

by Gayle Adler 2008

Learn a traditional Jewish art form that is as old as paper itself at the Mizel Museum this Sunday.

Everything you need to know to create your own masterpieces will be taught from idea to finished piece in this hands-on workshop. No prior art experience is necessary – if you can hold a pencil, you can do this! All materials will be provided. You may never have to buy a wedding gift again!

The Mizel museum will be premiering this interactive arts workshop in Jewish Papercutting. The workshop is for adults and will be from 1:00-4:00pm March 27 in the museum at 400 South Kearney Street. The art of Jewish Papercutting has seen a resurgence in the past several years both in Israel and abroad.

Gayle Adler, creator and director of Judaicuts will be teaching the workshop. Gayle has taught this art form to over 500 children and adults in Jerusalem, New York, California and Denver. She also teaches children’s arts classes (including papercutting, collage and multi media) in several locations throughout Denver and Boulder including the MACC Summer Art Academy, Creative Journeys at the Mizel Museum, and runs her own Girls Arts Camp.

The cost for Sunday’s workshop is $51 and includes materials. Space is limited and registration is required. To register, please call Jan Nadav at 303-749-5015 or email jcnadav@mizelmuseum.org. For further information on Gayle’s summer workshops, email judaicuts@gmail.com or join us on Facebook at “Judaicuts”.
