Popping up all over

Pop-up brochure about AMP

Christopher’s drawing enlivens the brochure for Achieving Maximum Potential (AMP)

Pop-ups are popping up all over! For the brochure at right, AMP participant Christopher drew the young person who pops out to give a thumbs-up to the program, “a youth-driven, statewide group that seeks to unleash the full potential for personal growth among foster and adoptive children in Iowa.” The pop-up brochure has the same information that you can find in a regular brochure (like how you can help AMP), adapted to be interactive and encourage people to pick it up.

Below left, my Franciscan Way of Life class met at Mount St. Francis to learn its history and meet the Sisters. For an art project we made pop-up cards with windows, exploring the idea of transformation.

Below right, I’ve had a long-term interest in paper in three dimensions. This sculpture is one of the 3-D “towns” I used to make, in cotton handmade paper, watercolored and dyed, with a bubble cover.
