Join CATS (Community Asian Theater of the Sierra) on Friday, June 25 at 7 p.m., via Zoom, as CATS continues its virtual cultural enrichment this summer. We are happy to present a watercolor tutorial on Allison Chan’s Origami Crane.
Allison grew up in the CATS family, is currently on its board of directors, has been on stage in CATS productions, and currently teaches the arts in Davis, California. She is also an illustrator and author of a children’s book, “My First Cell Phone Rules”. Allison will guide you through the methodical techniques and meditative calm of watercolor, with Zentangle patterns. See origami photo of the finished product on the CATS website.
Watercolor can inspire focus and stimulate creativity. The Japanese origami crane is a symbol of love, peace, healing and happiness. Watch the segment first, then try your hands later. In July, CATS will present, via Zoom, “The Art of Origami”, with Patty Lum-Ohmann, where she will teach how to fold a crane and a variety of other patterns.
