Fifth Grade Folding Maniacs!

Last week I conducted a workshop at the Detroit Institute of Art. Among those in attendance was Linda Shultz-Anderson, Art Teacher from the Academy of the Sacred Heart in Bloomfield Hills. She took my paper folding techniques back to her fifth grade class in the all-boys section in Kensington Hall. I just received these pictures from Mrs. Anderson.

Apparently we've created folding maniacs who can't stop folding paper...according to Linda "Their classroom teachers are not so pleased - because the boys want to fold, fold, fold - and NOT do their classwork. I have created paper monsters!"

I could not be more pleased.
