Community Oriented Project

This project is made possible with funds from the Decentralization Program, a regrant program of the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature and administered by Arts Mid-Hudson

Bring 1-2 friends, or family to decorate a Chinese silk fan in a Fan Painting workshop. After you paint your fan, an integration of “How to use a fan as a prop” will be discussed and samples of storytelling, poetry reading, and a fan movement will be demonstrated. You are free to  be a member of the audience, or use this fan as a prop in a improvisational performance in the Fan Fair. This Fan Fair will be open to our small group of participants only, which always helps us feel more free to express ourselves.  

We will share our painted fans in the Fan Your Talents Exhibition with the public if you wish.

Registration: It is necessary to register prior to the day of the class.   Pre-registration is required for all participants (Limited Class Size)
