We are happy to announce our current residence American artist, JP Neang’s workshop “Light of Fireflies: hotaru no hikari” at Studio Kura on Oct 20(Sun.), 22(Tue., holiday) and 27(Sun.).
I invite both children and adults to come and create a field of light up fireflies with me. We will be working with color changing LED, lithium batteries, small motors (optional), and basic crafting supplies. We don’t have fireflies in San Francisco and it’s always been my dream as a child to see them. When I went to Japan for the first time three years ago I was able to see them. It was a very warm memory and I’d like to share that moment with everyone. Let’s celebrate the beauty of fireflies together.
JP Neang is an Artist and Creative Educator from San Francisco, CA and has been a returning resident artist at Studio Kura since 2017.
As a Creative Educator with over 10 years of experience in developing innovative programming in children’s arts and sciences, she decided to give a fun and happy workshop to kids aged over 5 and adults in Itoshima during her stay!
