Motoko’s step-by-step instructions make the ancient Japanese art fun and accessible. Children will learn focus, imagination, and precision while creating pieces of art. This program is geared for families with kids ages 5 and up.

Motoko has performed in schools, libraries, and museums across the U.S. She is the author of A Year in Japan: Folktales, Songs, and Art for the Classroom.
