Asian-Pacific American Heritage Month Craft

Chinese Opera Masks

One of the oldest forms of drama, Chinese Opera has evolved as time has passed. One integral part of Chinese Opera is the mask worn by the performers.  More than just a prop, the colorful mask represents the character's personality, demeanor and even rank in society.  Often times an actual mask, the Chinese Opera mask can also be painted directly onto the actor's face.

Celebrate Asian-Pacific American Heritage Month with North Channel Branch Library on May 16.  Meet in the children's area of the library at 4:30 pm to design and color your own Chinese Opera mask.

They weren't supposed to succeed.  They were the rejected and outcast students of their high school.  But they had a secret weapon: their teachers, Mike Kersjes and Robynn McKinney, who believed that they could do anything. Even go to Space Camp where the best and brightest students competed in activities similar to those experienced by NASA astronauts.  Kersjes and McKinney knew that their kids could rise to the challenge if only given the chance.
