Leader: Chiz Horiuchi

Origami-paper folding technique is a therapeutic activity that connects people emotionally while engaging them cognitively. It is a great mindfulness activity as it allows you to focus on the present moment. In these Zoom sessions, you can learn to create artwork with just your hands and a piece of paper. No prior experience is required . Origami is a great inter-generational activity too. Grandparents can bring their grandchildren along if they live together. If they live separately, how about meeting up with your grandchildren in this class and participating in the same activity? Folding together will strengthen family bonds while everyone learns a new skill. During the pandemic, origami is a perfect way to feel calm and enjoy yourself while at home. Origami connects people who fold together because everyone starts with the same materials, a piece of paper, and then they engage in the same process. 

Please bring US letter size papers of any color or any prints with a pair of scissors if you do not have origami papers.
