Joomchi Korean Papermaking
A very different way of working with paper.

Contemporary artists are discovering that Joomchi interacts easily with other art disciplines, such as painting, fiber arts and book arts. Other art-making techniques can be incorporated into the making of a Joomchi work, such as drawing, calligraphy, stitching, dyeing, digital printing and laser cutting resulting in unique contemporary jewelry, wall hangings, sculptures and installations. It is an exciting and versatile medium, and its potential is still being discovered.

The instructor is Jiyoung Chung from Rhode Island. She is an international artist and wrote the book on this art form.

What is The New Action Art?
The New Action Art was borne from the abstract expressionist form of action painting made famous by artists such as Jackson Pollock and Willem de Kooning. With The New Action Art, artist-instructor Michael Schaffer has pioneered fun, approachable techniques for creating colorful abstract images using acrylic paints and inks. Michael’s unique approach makes it possible for artists of all ages and abilities to create their own high-quality art.

About the class
The New Action Art Workshop includes two 2-hour sessions with artist-instructor Michael Schaffer. In Session One, Michael will introduce students to the materials and techniques; review concepts related to color, composition, texture and paint flow; and lay the groundwork for a one-of-a-kind abstract painting. In Session Two, students will build on their painting using Michael’s specialized methods, eventually creating an original piece of abstract art infused with color, depth and personal meaning.
