The Art of Kamishibai

Japanese Storytelling

Kamishibai is the magical art of Japanese storytelling. Kami means paper and Shibai mean play. Kamishibai is such a powerful medium the Doctors Without Borders adopted it as part of its AIDS campaign. 


Join me in a fun, light-hearted Zoom workshop as I shares with you a Japanese Kamishibai story then we will draw and paint a scene from the story, Momo-taro, a boy who was born out of a peach that was floating down the river.

You will become a Kamishibai artist and a storyteller as you cut papers and paint a beautiful stage scene that asks the question, "What's in the Peach?".

Once you take this class, you'll be able to make your own Kamishibai (Paper stories), paint beautiful greeting cards, or make a colorful display piece for your home.

Date: Saturday, August 7

Time 10:00 - 11:30AM (PT)
