Paper Cutting Artist Kathryn Carr

Paper cutting artist Kathryn Carr will introduce you to the art and process she uses to create silhouettes and Scherenschnitte. She will discuss the basic history of paper cutting and how it spread throughout different cultures and will show examples of these various styles. She will also discuss her background and how she got started with paper cutting and the different ways she has used it in her art.  Album covers, greeting cards, original art, children’s books…

Kathryn is the illustrator of Lotte's Magical Paper Puppets: The Woman Behind the First Animated Feature Film by Brooke Hartman. She has exhibited both nationally and internationally in solo and group exhibitions. Kathryn is a Professional Teaching Artist with the Lifetime Arts, Board Member of the Craftsmen's Guild of Pittsburgh, a member Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators and the Greater Pittsburgh Arts Council. 
To the first 25 registrants who attend, Kathryn will provide a gift of a bookmark, greeting card and a few postcards in addition to a sample of the paper she uses for her art. This gift, including a coupon code for a discount on her website, can be picked up at the library after the talk (participants will be emailed when it is available). 
Paper Cutting Artist Kathryn Carr will be conducted via the free video conferencing software Zoom and a Library staff member will be supervising the session.  The Librarian coordinating the event will email each registrant a Zoom meeting invitation before the start of the program.  Zoom is available as a free desktop (for Windows, MacOS, and Linux Operating systems) and mobile application for Android and Apple iOS devices.
