Paper-making residency

Fiberart International, in partnership with the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts and PCA&M provided an Artist Residency Project. Teaching Artist, Papermaker, and Printmaker Katy DeMent led a 20-day program with 18 Creative Citizens Studios’ Citizen-artists and 82 Pittsburgh CAPA 6-12 students and 6 teachers. 

Over the course of the residency participant artists learned about hand papermaking as a contemporary art-form that can be expressive and versatile within its composition and construction, as well as a surface for embellishment, to produce dynamic artworks. 
The artists recycled, shredded, folded, pleated, embossed, collaged, sculpted, stitched, pulp-painted, printed, collaborated, communicated, curated, framed, organized, smiled, laughed, learned, and were inspired while exploring STEAM-centered processes.
