In celebration of Taiwanese American Heritage Week in the Chicago area, “Taiwan Folk Art” will be presented by the Taiwan Lion Dancing Artistry Association. During the workshop hours, you’ll be able to paint and learn from some fine artists. Below is a message from the organizers:

As the Coordinator of the Special Committee for the Taiwanese American
Heritage Week, I cordially invite you to celebrate 2010 Taiwanese American
Heritage Week with us. Every May since 2002, we have hosted a Taiwanese
performance group to celebrate Asian Pacific American Heritage Month.

This year we proudly present “Taiwan Folk Art” by Taiwan Lion Dancing Artistry
Association (TLDAA). An exhibition of various forms of art created by a group of
Taiwanese Folk Artists will be on display at Jefferson Junior High School in
Naperville. Admission is free and open to the public.

This group of seven folk artists from Taiwan will demonstrate how to make a lion
head painting, dough figurines, gourd carving/oil paper parasol painting, paper
cutting, sugar blowing sculptures, puppet painting, and tree bark/straw weaving.

The artists will be available to answer questions regarding their craft, and for
those who are interested workshop hours will be available. Those who wish to
learn need to bring their own water color set and brush, and a small materials fee.

Please contact Ms. Shirlin Yu at 630-717-7876 or shirlin@sbcglobal.net for
further information.
