Special Family Event
Ancient Chinese Arts Today: Paper Making
Sunday, April 12th, 2015 | 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
(Members $15)

Session 1, from 11:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m., is for children ages 5-12
$20 per person ($15 per Member), ages 5 and up

Families will explore, experiment, and discover the possibilities of creating their own unique papers with award-winning papermaker Mary Sullivan. Paper in its many forms is the material most commonly used to document who we are, as shown in the exhibition Chinese American: Exclusion/Inclusion. Making paper is an age-old process and materials that hold special meaning can be embedded in the paper and added to the surface to create wonderful stories of personal interest. Kids and their parents can bring in stamps, dried flowers, string, paper clippings, letters, or other small items to add to paper as it is made to personalize their work.

Tickets to this program include Museum admission and families are welcome to visit the special exhibition Chinese American: Exclusion/Inclusion.
