MOCACREATE: Celebrate Qing Ming and Welcome Spring!

April 4, 2020

Museum of Chinese in America
215 Centre Street, New York, NY 10013

Come paint, build, craft, or collage – use familiar materials, or experiment with new! Inspired by the museum’s exhibitions and local artists, MOCACREATE explores different themes every month. Free with Museum admission!

In April, Qing Ming is a day for remembering the past. Families go to the grave sites of their ancestors and honor them by hosting elaborate picnics. Mold clay people, tea eggs, drum sticks, oranges, almond cookies, and more to create your very own Qing Ming picnic scene. Then celebrate the new beginnings of spring and let your imagination soar as you design a one-of-a-kind kite!
