- IMPORTANT NEWS!
- Craft on the Go
Operation Overlord, the amphibious invasion of north west France on June 6, 1944, the largest seaborne assault ever conducted, was carefully planned over a six month period as a combined, joint service operation. The operation nearly failed. This presentation will review the details of this crucial invasion.
This presentation will be given by Paul E. Zigo. Mr. Zigo is a history professor, author and military historian, as well as the founder and director of the World War II Era Studies Institute.
This hands-on workshop will start with a description of Chinese calligraphy and the proper way to hold the brush and how to use the writing set. This will be followed by a demonstration and practice writing a few characters. The second part of the class will be a description, demonstration and practice of Chinese brush painting. This workshop will be taught by Ms. Jiang from the Renaissance Chinese Opera Society.
Participants must be at least 16 years-old.
