Cherry blossoms, trees and koi kites/puppets for the Japanese Spring Festivals, and baby animal drawings, kids' and adults' classes in April.
These koi, (carp), kites or as stick puppets here, by kids and adults, swim across our quickie sky or water.
Make them simply by folding a sheet of paper in half the long way. Fold the open long side over a few times. Turn over to the inside one of the open ends, (like you would do a grocery bag but fold to the inside. Cut some body and tail profile to give the fish more fish like shape. Then decorate. Start with the eyes. Draw with strong black crayon so it shows up well. Draw the designs as you wish - gills, mouth ripples, fins, scales, tail fin lines. Color it!
Note that one of these 'koi' kites may actually be a rainbow trout - or, rainbow carp!
Adult class drew cherry blossoms and trees.
Baby animals - we drew a kitten - one is named Butterscotch after the child's adult cat. We did a chick, a calf, a lamb, and a colt as well.
