Got plans for your kids during that limbo week between Christmas and New Years? If not, consider enrolling your child in JACCC's annual one-day Oshogatsu workshop, where they can participate in arts and crafts, activities, and traditional Japanese New Years practices led by local artists and community members, creating lasting memories and fostering cultural values that they will cherish for years to come.

Starting this year, participants will be split into two groups according to age. Group A will consist of participants ages 7-10 and Group B will consist of participants ages 11-14. By splitting the group we plan to engage participants on a deeper level in these workshops. Registration includes a special Year of the Rooster t-shirt. The workshop is limited to 50 participants, and pre-registration is required. Space will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis.

- When: Wednesday December 28
- Time: 10 AM - 3 PM
- Who: Children ages 7-14

- Interactive "Year of the Rooster" calligraphy class
- Taiko class on the Aratani Theatre stage
