MOCA Teaches Kids about Qing Ming through Arts

Qing Ming is a day for remembering the past in China. Families visit grave sites of their ancestors and honor them by hosting elaborate picnics.
To teach children about the culture in a fun way, educators at MOCA worked with students to create clay versions of people, tea eggs, drumsticks, oranges, almond cookies, and more to add to their own Qing Ming picnic scenes.
