Paper-cutter, Printmaker and Textile Artist
Alicia Kelly was born and raised among the red dirt and wildflowers of northeastern Oklahoma. Her love of paper developed alongside her love of Indian textiles and screen-printing which lead her to the meditative practice of paper-cutting. Since receiving her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Printmaking in 2010 from the University of Kansas, she has exhibited in numerous galleries, non-profit and flash spaces- including Stumptown Printers (Portland), Spencer Museum of Art (Lawrence, KS) and Hongik University (Seoul, South Korea). Her recent creative endeavors include a residency and installation at Proyecto Ace in Buenos Aires.Browse All Classes
Box Sydney 1st-2nd
1st - 2nd Grades
While planning, designing, and engineering a kid sized, cardboard box metropolis, students apply their imaginations to fill the city in. Using Sydney, Australia as an example, we will look at urban planning and design and how it shapes the world we live in. Students gain appreciation for shape, form, and proportion as they apply these principles to their expanding city. The real magic happens as students take ownership of their structures, identities, and culture within the city. The city is installed in the lobby for all to enjoy with a public opening on the last day of camp.
