About this event:
Please join us for a wycinanki Polish paper-cutting program, lead by artist Grace Bazylewski, in celebration of Polish American Heritage Month.
Polish cutouts (wycinanki) are the result of cutting, clipping, punching, tearing and carving of paper into sometimes abstract and at other times recognizable forms.
A Chicago born Polish American, Grace Bazylewski is the daughter of post World War II political immigrants. She learned the art of wycinanki from Polish artists living in the United States while a member of the Polish Youth Association, Harcerstwo. She has been a teacher and practitioner of the folk art form for over thirty five years.
Ages 10 & up
