Middle School Art: Polish Leluja Paper Cuttings

Students studied Polish folk art, specifically Leluja paper cuttings.  They learned that traditionally these colorful and intricate paper cuttings were often found in rural villages pasted on newly white-washed walls each spring.  Students looked at traditional designs and created their own symmetrical paper cutting including a large stylized tree form, with birds and other animals.
