the cut-out box!


This #CUToutBOX is an exploration of assembling and building cut shapes. One project focuses on a 2D (flat) creation with black and white.  The second one focuses on a 3D (form) creation with unlimited colors! Both use scissors to get there! 

Cutting out shapes means we have pieces to work with, but what if we arrange those pieces differently by flipping, twisting, bending, weaving, or turning them?  This is how an assemblage is created! 

Learn how to make art with your name first in our featured 3D project and then explore the world of 2D with flipped shapes that create symmetry.
