Fall 2020 continuing education classes are being taught remotely. Studio classes have live remote meetings. Basic requirements to take a class are an internet connection, computer, and an internet linked camera (like a cell phone). Most classes will be hosted through Zoom or MassArt Moonami. For specific course requirements, contact the CE office at ce@massart.edu or your instructor. Fall classes are still being added--check again soon.

Pop-Ups and Paper Engineering Workshop


Start Date






End Date


Meeting Day




This online course features the following types of interaction:

  • Live meetings
  • Live critiques

In this course you will design in two-dimensions and three-dimensions, and learn how to transform flat paper into moving sculpture. Three different categories of pop-ups will be introduced: those that become dimensional while in motion, those that become dimensional when open fully, and constructions that combine multiple parts. These paper engineering skills can be applied to making unique cards and artist books. No previous experience is necessary.
