Learning OrigamiArtists of all ages are invited to learn how to fold a classic origami crane in this free expressive arts program that highlights the history and therapeutic qualities of the medium. Origami mentors are welcomed who know how to fold cranes and can help instruct others at the open drop-in gathering. The intergenerational learning program teaches the wellness benefits of creativity through the experience of art-making, art-taking and art-giving. Participants can support the Art HOPE 1000 Healing Cranes Project and make origami for York Hospital Oncology patients and individuals living with long-term illness in our community.
