Japanese Tea Ceremony  |  Duxbury  |  2006 

The Japanese Tea Ceremony program at the Art Complex Museum in Duxbury introduced second-graders to Japanese culture through a specially designed curriculum and tea ceremony experience. Led by Museum staff, students made a cup of tea, learned the art of Sumi-e painting, created a rice paper scroll, and participated in a traditional tea ceremony at the Museum. The project was designed by second-grade teacher Helen Fowler as part of a Fulbright grant to develop curriculum on Japanese culture for students. The program was a wonderful collaboration between the Duxbury schools and the Art Complex Museum. It demonstrated the role that state funding can play in the development of quality educational programming.
