summer camp

week 2 wrap up and matsuri!


Grace Art Camp Kazoku!

Over the past three days, art campers have learned how to say their color group in Japanese, Good Morning (Ohiyo Gozaimas), Good Afternoon (konichiwa), and “see you soon” (ja mata). We enjoyed spending a day with Portland Taiko, who performed with a variety of drums and a flute after recess yesterday and spent the whole day in Music & Dance. Today included making origami (spinning tops and jumping frogs) with Guest Artist Yuki Martin and calligraphy and rice paper marbling sprinkles with gold leaf with Mami Takehashi.

Tomorrow, Friday, we will all hear the finale of this week’s mukashi banashi (a very old story), and find out the secret to Bunbuku Chagama (happiness bubbling over like a tea pot).
