ACCORDION ART BOOK MAKING EVENT
I Love My Holiday Town!
Accordion Art Book is one of the Japanese traditional book formats. It can be read as a regular book when it is folded, and it also presents a panoramic picture when the book is pulled off.
During the event, Yukie Yasui, an acclaimed Japanese illustrator, will instruct children how to create their own holiday towns on the accordion art books by collage, drawing and decorating with unlimited imagination and creativity.
To celebrate holiday season, a portion of the MIKI HOUSE’s proceeds of the event day will be donated to The Fresh Air Fund, a not-for-profit organization that has provided free summer experiences in the country to more than 1.8 million New York City children from low-income communities, creating unforgettable memories and fresh opportunities.
