ON PAPER: An Active Material: Monday, July 29 through Friday, August 2, 2024.

 

Interested in learning more about all the things you could possibly make with paper and the infinite art-making processes this simple yet incredibly versatile material lends itself to? Join us on a journey of exploration into the materiality, design, storytelling, and archive capabilities of paper at the Queens Museum Middle School Camp Program.

 

Experience a week of self-discovery, creativity, and collaboration as we celebrate paper as more than just a surface—it’s an active material full of boundless potential. From xerox art to printmaking, collage, zines, sculpture, and even button-making, discover how paper evolves into expressive mediums and a vehicle for sharing stories with communities.

 

Participants will have the opportunity to engage closely with several ongoing exhibitions that directly relate to processes and materials we will be exploring during this program:
