Description:
 In China, September is welcomed with “Chrysanthemum Day,” a celebration of autumn. The chrysanthemum is an auspicious flower, also referred to as one of the “Four Gentlemen of China” along with the plum blossom for spring, the orchid for summer and the bamboo plant for winter. Since the word nine is homophonous with the word “jiu” for “long time,” Chrysanthemum Day is also a day for honoring elders. Participants will create their own version of a beautiful chrysanthemum. All supplies are provided. No background in art is necessary. Ages 8 through adult.
