Cultural Activity on Tanabata


NILS offers calligraphy and origami in our cultural program “Tanabata” in early July to get familiar with Japanese traditional culture. Most of our students had no experience in such cultural activities. In the calligraphy lessons, students started learning such a basic thing like how to hold a brush. It is different from how to write in pen/pencil, so they practiced writing simple lines repeatedly to get used to brush writings. At the end, they wrote their favorite word(s) on a piece of paper. Origami is one of the Japanese cultures they have never experienced before. we can create various forms such as animals and flowers by folding square paper without using glue or scissors. Origami was difficult for many students, but they enjoyed these Japanese cultures (^^)
