The Asian Art Museum, part of the Smithsonian, is hosting a free Cherry Blossom Festival Webinar for students in 4th to 6th grades.
From the Asian Art Museum: What is it about cherry trees, or sakura, that makes them so beloved? During this live, interactive webinar, students will explore hanami, the traditional Japanese custom of “flower viewing.”
Through paintings, woodblock prints, and other art forms, students will discover Japanese symbols, values, and traditions associated with blooming cherry trees.
These sessions are perfect for homeschool groups or for teachers who may want to review a recording after the live session. Several sessions also incorporate Japanese for language learners. Register for dates depending on student grade level. Links to view the recording will be sent to those who register.
Intended for children in grades 4-6.
