Friday Photos: Asian Festival

Springtime brings green grass, sunny weather, and fun festivals around the Metroplex.  Go van Gogh provides art activities for visitors of all ages at annual arts and cultural festivals including the Asian Festival, CityArts, Juneteenth, Discovery Days at the Museum of Nature and Science, and the Tulisoma South Dallas Book Fair.

This past Saturday, we participated in the MetroPCS Asian Festival, which took place in Main Street Garden in downtown Dallas.  Visitors to our booth were welcomed with images of “Mushrooms”, a Haiku Poem, a scroll from our Japanese collection.  The scroll features a haiku written in Japanese calligraphy accompanied by an illustration of mushrooms, the poem’s subject.  View pictures of our visitors below as they draft their haikus, carefully write and illustrate their poems on delicate rice paper, and mount their poems with printed origami paper.  Ending the slideshow is an image of dancers from Ka Pā Hula O Manulani, Texas Hawaiian Culture and Hula School. 

If you’d like to visit the DMA booth at an upcoming festival, check our web site to see where we’ll be next!

      Yes, this girl clearly knew a lot about dinosaurs. She spent a lot of time on her haiku and illustration.
