Daily Planner: Making Origami Art

Hey kids, drop by the Corte Madera Library on Thursday to learn how to make more than just paper airplanes.

Here are some of the highlights happening around the Larkspur and Corte Madera Twin Cities area August 15-16:

Children between the ages of 8 and older are invited to gather in the children’s room of the Corte Madera Library, for the finale in a series of five origami classes given by Kiyoshi Okada at the Corte Madera Library on Thursday at 2 p.m.

The students are discovering there's more to origami than just playing with paper. It can be an expression of determination and caring. It can be an art and a science.
