The Fremont Area Art Association will offer a Papel Picado tissue paper project kids’ art class from 1-3 p.m. Jan. 20. The class, designed for ages 7 and up, will be led by local artist, Mary Ringenberg.
Papel Picado, considered a Mexican fold art, is a decorative craft made out of paper, cut into designs. Children will use colored tissue paper to achieve this technique, and create banners and collage.
Ringenberg has earned degrees in art, journalism and advertising and specializes in working with pastels, acrylic painting, collage and assemblage art. She has taught a number of children’s art classes through the Fremont Area Art Association, Keene Memorial Library and in Lincoln.
