Lunar New Year treats at the Public Market:

February 9th (Saturday)
10:30am – 12pm Lion Dance This annual tradition starts in the Public Market. Follow the lion dancers as they make their way through the market and around the island bringing good luck and prosperity. The God of Fortune will hand out lucky red envelopes and good wishes for the year.

11am – 2pm Sugar Painting Watch a traditional form of Chinese folk art that uses hot, liquid sugar to create two and three dimensional figures. Walk away with a tasty edible art piece. Location: Public Market, Southwest entrance

11am — 12:30pm & 2pm — 3:30pm Celebrate the Lunar New Year by learning Chinese calligraphy with Peter! Take a glimpse into the history, tradition, philosophy, and practical use of the tools and methods of writing and painting with brush and ink. Peter will demonstrate how to set up your work space, writing Chinese characters without understanding the language (Chinese as well as Japanese), and how calligraphy and painting are closely connected. Peter will also discuss how brush calligraphy can be used as a tool for mindful practice to get you started on our 28-Day Opus Daily Practice! https://opusartsupplies.com/odp
