Adult Enrichment / ACE Highlights -
Winter 2024

Learn about paper-cut art and how this bold, intricate technique is used in the work of illustrator, graphic designer, professor—and ACE cover artist—Peter O Zierlein. “I draw with a knife,” he says about his technique of cutting organic, round, angular, and sharp forms into folded paper that he uses as a starting point for illustration, graphic design, pattern design, stencil design, and installations. Peter will discuss the broad history and the practice of paper-cut art; its use in cultural and religious contexts; and myriad ways he uses the medium to create fine art prints, posters, patterns for wallpaper and textiles, murals, sculptures, plywood boats, and more. His client list includes The New York Times, The Washington Post, and The Guardian; German publications Berliner Zeitung, Stern, and Spiegel; and other national and international newspapers and magazines.
