To celebrate the Lunar New Year, join the Seaport Museum and skilled teaching artists from the New York Chinese Cultural Center for one of three 45-minute workshops exploring the art of Chinese Calligraphy and its importance to the Lunar New Year. Using a traditional calligraphy brush, participants will be instructed on how to write simple characters while exploring the relationship between ancient Chinese pictographs and their modern-day ideographs. Together, we will learn the evolution of the Chinese characters that tie to fish, the sea, and a prosperous New Year. While primarily designed for children ages 7–12, these workshops are open to all ages. Due to limited capacity, advanced registration is required. Repeated at 3pm and 4pm.
