A small group of Art House students was invited to participate in a kirie papercutting workshop with Erie Arts and Culture’s Visiting Artist Hiromi Moneyhun on Friday, September 4th. Kirie is the Japanese art of papercutting. Hiromi, who is native to Kyoto, Japan and currently lives in Jacksonville Florida, shared examples of her intricately cut paper images with students who were then invited to create their own cut paper images using patterns. Each student’s finished project was placed inside a clear ornament to be displayed in their homes. We really enjoyed the opportunity to see Hiromi’s artwork and learn about the kirie artform!
