Paper Art Class instructors - Stephen and Christina Lee
Seasons have come and gone, and five years have passed so quickly. I was looking forward to a leisurely retirement life! Every Thursday, I look forward to attending the Paper Folding Class. Students in the class take great interest in studying all kinds of paper products. They would talk and laugh together, and would forget all the troubles they may have to face when outside of the classroom. They would eagerly come out with many different types of paper products, such as a little pig, a kitten, a bunny or even a lifelike golden dragon! Paper folding is a fascinating handicraft, involving much details without tying you up, making it a pleasant leisurely activity. It is attractive because it can turn waste paper into an invaluable piece of art, and can train our minds. The products can be gifted to friends or used by oneself as artistic décor in the home. You can make full use of your artistic potential, enjoy the satisfaction of creating something, and have fun in your retirement years. You can even attain a worry-free life style throughout the years with the skills learned.
Paper art is an attractive and fascinating handicraft. Pieces of useless magazine paper are folded into charming and precious art form! It is also a solidarity action supporting the environment! It helps us to build up an appreciation for beauties, train our thinking abilities, and awaken our artistic potentials. This is another way to appreciate and enjoy life! We teach our students the skills in paper folding, and at the same time, we also learn valuable lessons from them. Some students would give their beloved art work to others; this is an act of selflessness. They continued to come to class even when they were sick, and that demonstrated their positive attitude! They persevered in helping each other and enjoyed a harmonious time together.
We are getting more zealous in teaching the class due to the support and recognition given to us by the students. We look forward to coming to the class each Thursday. Please join our interest group and have fun together!
