This Month we will be focusing on Origami: The Art of Paper Transformation 🎨✨. Origami, the ancient Japanese art of paper folding, is more than just crafting; it’s a mesmerizing journey of creativity and precision. With a single sheet of paper and a series of intricate folds, origami has the power to transform simplicity into complexity, a blank canvas into a work of art, and a moment of calm into an engaging and rewarding experience.

This month activity will be led by Our very own Communications Director, Sabrina Smith of The Witch Designs, which is a witchy and nature-inspired shop that aims to create wearable and practical art for the everyday human. Their jewelry, stickers, and petite home decor goods are made by hand with love and intention in their witches’ hut (home studio).

Also back by popular demand, Dani Newman of Big Dipper Creative will be leading a game of Exquisite Corpse. Not Familiar? Exquisite Corpse is not as eerie as its name suggests; it’s an imaginative activity that originated in the early 20th century among Surrealist artists. The game involves a group of participants creating a collective artwork, typically a drawing or a piece of writing. However, there’s a catch: each contributor only sees a small part of what the previous person has added, leading to a delightfully unpredictable outcome.
