Paper Sculpture inspired by BiJian Fan
Paper sculptor BiJian Fan learned paper folding and cutting art from his grandmother while growing up in Communist China. With this inspiration, Learning To See students explore the infinite possibilities of a piece of paper following rules that BiJian has sometimes used in his pieces: only cutting and folding; nothing can be added or taken away!

The artwork below was produced in AVID classrooms at DeAnza Academy of Technology and the Arts, Cabrillo Middle School, Anacapa Middle School and Rio del Valle Middle School. These Learning To See Outreach residencies were generously funded by the California Arts Council.
