About this program

There are countless old Christmas traditions. Perhaps the most popular custom is giving and receiving gifts. Especially for kids and parents, handmade decorations make the best presents to share with loved ones. In this activity, Shang Jianghua will teach kids how to make decorative Christmas trees out of paper rolls. She will also teach kids all about Christmas trees and how they provide homes to many different animals in the winter.

Magic Cat Eco Workshop combines arts and crafts with education on the natural world. Teaching through play, they create artworks from natural objects and make useful things from recycled materials. Their aim is simple—helpkids in the city understand and embrace nature.

UCCA Touching Nature Series
Nature is a source of inspiration for artists. The changing colors of the seasons, animals whispering in the woods, and the rich smell of the trees and the soil all serve as sparks to the imagination. The multicolored, multitextured objects found in nature make the best materials for handicrafts. In the “Touching Nature” series, we will use resources from nature and recycled materials to make art.
