Museum of Arts and Design
The Museum of Arts and Design is conducting a fun and informal workshop, on Saturday, February 13, at 10 am, led by artist and MAD artist educator Jocelyn Hsin-Ju Yang, who will demonstrate how to make paper cutouts for Lunar New Year.
MAD’s Digital Drop-ins are for participants of all ages, backgrounds, and skill levels. Following the demonstration, participants will have time to independently work on their project and share with “neighbors” in the virtual class.
All Digital Drop-ins are 45 minutes. Registrants will receive an email 24 hours in advance of the program with instructions for accessing the workshop on Zoom.
This event costs $10 for non-members and is free to current members.

SUGGESTED MATERIALS. Pencil, scissors. Origami paper (works the best for its thickness and shape. If not available, construction paper or tissue paper could also work).
Paper cutouts for Lunar New Year are traditionally in red, but it's your choice. It's not uncommon to see other colors for paper cutout decorations during Lunar New Year today, especially among the younger generation.
