This is NOT your
run-of-the-mill drinking art class!
Each piece will reflect your own unique vision.
It all began when working as an art teacher; the Headmistress asked Ruth to cut silhouettes at the annual school fair. She has been using her skills ever since.
An art graduate of Pratt Institute, this New Jersey artist starts with a sketch, then with her special French shears, cuts her paper with amazing mastery.
The tradition of silhouette portraits was at its most popular in the 18th and 19th centuries. The name is derived from Etienne de Silhouette, a mid-18th century French Finance Minister, whose hobby was cut-out profiles. The collecting of this medium became widespread, the collection of Goethe being an outstanding example.
The average time it takes to cut is 15 minutes. We suggest for the younger children, to bring them in post-naptime and with a full belly along with a book or lap-sized activity to help keep them from the wiggles.
