May Free Class — ORIGAMI


May Free Class -- ORIGAMI

The Tullahoma Fine Arts Center offers a monthly free classes for adults and children on the last Wednesday of every month. These classes are funded by the Lilian Ashley Fund through The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee.
May’s classes will held on the 28th. The first session will take place from 1.30 – 3.00. The second session will take place from 3.30 – 5.00. This month’s activity will be Origami, and will be taught by Kenny Keawekane. All supplies are provided by the Arts Center.
Origami is the ancient Japanese art of paper folding. ORI means “to fold” and KAMI means “paper.” Together, they form the word, “origami.” It is an art form that is traditionally handed down from parent to child, connecting many family generations.
Origami involves the creation of paper forms entirely by folding. Animals, birds, fish, geometric shapes, puppets, toys and masks are among the models that even very young children can learn to make in just one sitting.
To reserve spots, please visit and fill out the registration form, or call us at (931) 455-1234. Parents are encouraged to participate in the classes with their children. The classes are free, but we do accept donations which are used to cover the costs of classes for children and families who might otherwise be unable to participate.

About Tullahoma Art Center

"Preserving the past, engaging the present and nurturing the future of Middle Tennessee by stimulating diverse creative expression, positive encouragement and quality, regional opportunities for access to and instruction in the Arts and Humanities." The Tullahoma Fine Arts Center is an ADA-compliant facility committed to the development of quality cultural experiences and education by providing access to and instruction in the Arts and Humanities, and influencing the direction of area visual, literary, performing and creative arts. TFAC, above all, encourages professionalism in the artistic community and among its artists and students, thereby raising standards of excellence in creativity, design and the production and practice of cultural craftsmanship. We promote the development of arts programming opportunities by offering classes, demonstrations, performances, publications and exhibitions. We are currently expanding our Member Gallery so that members may display and/or sell their original works -- creating unique marketing opportunities for them to reach local, regional and national audiences. We strive to increase public experience, understanding, appreciation and awareness of (as well as access to) the Arts and Humanities, especially in underserved and disenfranchised communities. TFAC seeks to strengthen our existing Regional Art Museum and lending library by encouraging donations of books, works of art and the endowment of funds to secure further permanent collections of both. We are actively exploring ways to assist area school systems with their Arts and Humanities curriculums, providing both extracurricular and co-curricular opportunities for gifted and talented students as well as for the academically and economically disadvantaged. Finally, we are firmly committed to partnering with civic organizations, other non-profits, city, county and state governments to compliment each another’s fields of expertise.
