Chinese Paper Cutting is a very distinctive visual art of Chinese handicrafts and originated from the 6th century when women used to paste golden and silver foil cuttings onto their hair at the temples, and men used them in sacred rituals. Nowadays, the paper cuttings are widely used in holiday and wedding events. Red papers are commonly used to present wealth and fortune. Ms. Wang will teach attendees to use colorful papers, scissors, and some special tools to make interesting works presenting people, animals, flower patterns, and even stories.

Ms. Yang Wang founded Westlake Chinese Academy in 2014. She believes that during the process of learning, students are capable of assimilating a lot of knowledge while still having fun through games, arts, and other activities. She and the co-founder, Ms. Xuefei Zhu, have created fun and efficient Chinese language and arts classes for children of all ages.
