MOCACREAT at Home: Remember with Willow Crowns 🍃 for Qing Ming 💐
MOCACREATE at Home: Remember
with Willow Crowns for Qing Ming
Today is Qing Ming (清明), a time to honor our ancestors and visit their
resting places. Willows and their leafy branches are thought to
represent new life and ward off evil, so they are a common
sight during Qing Ming. Join MOCA educator Alice in learning
more about this important holiday and then create a willow
branch crown to wear or give as an offering.
We’d love to see how you choose to remember your
loved ones. Send a picture of your willow branch tributes to firstname.lastname@example.org, tag us
@mocanyc, or use the hashtags #mocanyc, #MOCACREATE, or

MOCACREATE at Home: Tell
Us a Story —Opera Costumes
Have you ever been to the opera or heard opera
music? What about Chinese opera? For this week’s MOCACREATE at
Home, we’re exploring the vibrant world of Cantonese opera, the
different roles actors play, and their unique costumes. Then,
we’re making our own opera puppets with materials from home!
What role will your puppet play? Put on an opera performance at
home for your family and friends to see!
used stamps to mail letters and postcards, but have you
ever wondered how stamp designs are chosen? The post office
creates stamps to celebrate holidays, recognize significant
events, and honor important people, but there are so many
remarkable people who aren’t on stamps yet. Have you
noticed how few Asian Americans are featured? For Women’s
History Month, we wanted to honor the amazing
accomplishments of some of our favorite Chinese American
women. Swipe to learn how to make your own
Who do you
think should be on a stamp? Share your designs with us by
