Pablo Center Classes to Teach About Hmong, Korean Cultures
Kids can learn about new cultures through the arts with several classes slated for this summer at the Pablo Center at the Confluence in downtown Eau Claire. Learn a little bit of history and a whole lot of craft at the Hmoob Paj Ntaub (Hmong Storycloth) classes, intended for second- through fourth-grade students. Learn about the history of paj ntaub and the meaning of different stitch patterns, and take home stitch patterns to make your own paj ntaub. This event is free for Eau Claire Area School District students and $25 for non-ECASD students and will be from 1-2pm on June 21-25. If you’re looking to learn a new language, check out Pablo’s Korean Language and Culture camp for fourth- through ninth-grade students on June 14-18. Learn how to read, write, and speak the Korean language. Students will also experience contemporary and traditional Korean cultural activities like Norabang (Korean karaoke), hanji paper arts, and Korean traditional drumming. It’s free for ECASD students and $85 for non-ECASD students. Check out cool new events for kids at pablocenter.org.
