We will delve into the many possibilities of building up our drawings into the pop-up form, from exploding abstract forms to small animated narratives. The condensing and expanding motion of pop-up mechanisms can enhance the drawn image and create a magical handheld experience for the viewer. Beginning with sketching, basic folds, and structures, participants will create several small single fold projects with a focus on hand-drawn elements. We will build toward combining these techniques into a bound three-page (or more!) pop-up book. Claire will bring some of the pop-up books from her own collection for inspiration and discussion.
