ART + TOMODACHI at Art Works Now

On an idyllic spring morning in March 2015, more than forty young professional women newly arrived from Japan as part of the leadership initiative called Tomodachi were the guests of the City of Hyattsville. The City created an exciting program where these young leaders met with local women in leadership and had the chance to share ideas and make lasting connections. Art Works Now was fortunate to be invited to this inspiring day and have the opportunity to provide an art workshop exploring many facets of Japanese culture. For our teaching artists, the workshop presented a unique chance to learn directly from these young women about contemporary Japanese society, life, and culture and then infuse what was learned into an art curriculum here in Hyattsville, Maryland.
