In celebration of #EarthDay this week, the #fwmoa Studio is going green! Learn how to make new paper with used paper from around your home. Then, with your new (reused) paper, make a simple print inspired by nature.
Today, we make a mosaic out of construction paper inspired by painter Alma Thomas, whose work is currently on display at FWMoA in the show "By Women: A Selection from the Permanent Collection".
