Origami (3-5) – $440
In this class students will learn the art of paper folding known as Origami. Using only hands, with no additional tools such as glue, scissors or staples, students will transform flat pieces of decorative and colorful Japanese paper into three dimensional models. In a relatively short time, students will acquire useful skills which will enable them to read and decode origami diagrams and develop an ability to create origami models on their own.
During the course of the Origami class, students will create useful and decorative origami models including containers, animals, flowers, party tricks, table decorations, greeting cards, envelopes, action toys, calendars and many more. During each session, students will end up with 1- or 2 models which they will later be able to use as decorations, gifts, or for practical use. In the course of the origami class students will familiarize themselves with many mathematical concepts which are part of the origami folding process, such as fractions, symmetry, proportion, and angles while growing their creativity and practicing their fine motor skills.
