Origami, paper quilling offered at VC Kids College
Victoria College's Kids College continues this month with a four-day session on origami and paper quilling for children in fifth-eighth grades.
The session will be 9 a.m.-noon Monday-Thursday in the Victoria College Continuing Education Center, Room 100.
The fee for the course is $95 per student. Students will learn an ancient and exotic art form. Changing a boring, flat piece of paper into a 3-D shape is like magic. Students will also learn the art of paper quilling, a hobby that dates back to the 18th century.
