Considering the Arts #11: Yoshimi Arai on “Origami for Grownups 101”


When: Sunday, February 5, 2 pm

Where: Symphony Knoll, 15 Mt Airy Rd, Croton-on-Hudson, NY

Cost: Free & Public is Invited

CCoA presents the eleventh in its series Considering the Arts.  Yoshimi Arai is a paper artist/craftsperson (as well as an expert in sushi, storyteller, and a member of CCoA’s Board). Origami, from ori meaning “folding”, and kami meaning “paper” is the art of paper folding.   Yoshimi will explain how simple folds can lead to beautiful, sometimes complex creations, and give some insights into the role of the art in Japanese culture and life.  This class will focus on the creative discipline of folding papers correctly and precisely, memorizing every step to make a desired form; and on the joy of the result.  At the end, everyone should be able to make their own paper crane (orizuru), considered the most classic of all Japanese origami.

Please advise Yoshimi if you plan to attend by sending her an email (ucmee.arai@ask-network.com) before February 2 to help her plan to have sufficient materials for everyone.
