In this studio art course, participants will experiment with numerous techniques found in cutting, folding, shaping and molding multiple weights and sizes of paper found in the MFTA warehouse. Participants use investigative thinking skills and problem-solving through a series of hands-on learning projects that promote higher cognitive learning skills.

MATERIALS: COVID -19 Update:  This year, Materials for the Arts faced an unusual challenge of turning our in-person class into an online class. In order to keep supply materials and class costs as low as possible, each participant can schedule a socially distant Curbside Pickup Appointment at our Warehouse to pick up a pre-packed box of free materials for your class. In addition, each participant will need to  independently purchase or borrow materials listed on your course Supply List.

Curbside Pickup Appointment Times:

  • Monday or Wednesday afternoons at 2:00pm. Email jkaiser@mfta.nyc.gov to RSVP for a pickup supply day. If you are unable to pick up materials on these days, our team will work with you to accommodate.
