Studio Art: Japanese Origami Cranes

In Studio Art class we are going to be talking with students in Japan via social media and creating a collection of Japanese Origami Cranes.  Students will create unique textile designs (there's an example of traditional textiles below but you can feel free to be creative) on paper then fold them into paper cranes for our Japanese counterparts.  I took the photo above at the Hiroshima memorial in Japan and it shows how origami cranes are traditionally grouped, we'll create a similar grouping of 1000 cranes as well.

We will also talk with students in Japan via the Going Global network
