Family Day at Oregon Historical Society Recap

The event was fun and full of families, elephants (not the real ones), and green (for St. Patrick's Day)! They even had green popcorn and green cotton candies for snack.

These are the artworks I made for display at OHS.

Hindi Goddess Ganesha made in origami

The elephant model is from Yasutomo Animal Print Origami package.
The model creator is unknown.











In honor of Packy.

I wanted to create some art pieces that express how elephants are highly regarded both in Hindu and in Buddhism for different reasons. I also created something to honor the birthday elephant, Packy!

My table set up...
This is a box that I always use to hold my business cards.
It was a gift from a group of students that I used to teach.
Coincidentally, it has a beautiful design of elephants on it!
"Elephant Book Corner" had an elephant print chair and a basket full of elephant books.
I had to have a photo taken with my elephant skirt!

While I was at OHS, I ran into some people that I know, including an event coordinator at the Oregon Zoo. She invited me to work at the official celebration of Packy's birthday at the zoo! I will be teaching more people how to make origami elephants, yey! I will be at the Oregon Zoo from 10am to 4pm, on Saturday, April 14. You can read more about the event here.
