CHILDREN'S OSHOGATSU WORKSHOP
MONDAY, DECEMBER 28 • 10AM-3PM
By sharing traditions with our children, we pass on not only the rituals but also the spirit of the holidays to the next generation. Engage your child in JACCC's one-day Oshogatsu workshop, where they can participate in arts and crafts activities and watch demonstrations led by local artists and community members, creating lasting memories and fostering cultural values that they will cherish for years to come.
Workshops are designed for children ages 7-12. Registration includes a special Year of the Monkey t-shirt. The workshop is limited to 30 participants, and pre-registration is required. Space will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis.
