Origami is for everyone. It can be for the young, the old, or whoever wants to enjoy it. It can be easy or hard depending on the complexity of the model. It can be relaxing or mind-bending depending on your reasons for folding. It can be fun, no matter how old you are, or what your level of expertise is.

Thank you for all you do for our Greene students. Whenever I see you working with our students, all I see are happy faces. The work you do with our students through Origami gives them a stronger sense of confidence, because completing an origami gives all students a sense of accomplishment. I'm certain our Greene students will always remember their wonderful Origami experience with you.

My son came home really enthusiastic about origami class! He's told me several times over the past few days how much he likes it, and he was excited to tell us all about the things he made.

My son chose to take this origami class on a whim, but it immediately became one of his favorite activities. Each week, he’s excited to come home and practice what he’s made in class. After learning to make origami boxes, he made 20 more at home! He made one for everyone in our family before a hike, so we‘d have a way to collect leaves and flowers.  The origami class has truly been such a wonderful experience for him.

My daughter expected Ms. Halina’s class every week and always had a big smile walking out the class showing her new origami to me. I can also feel Ms. Halina’s bonding with the kids, as mine always talked about her! I am glad that there is such a class to make my daughter’s art journey more joyful.

You have been spreading such good energy in the classroom, and my daughter has been pretty happy with participating in your class. Anyways, thanks for your time and for making the classes fun. Whenever my wife and daughter come back from your class, she always mentions how friendly and caring you are.

My son loved the class, he has always loved origami since he was in kindergarten. I really appreciate this class is appropriate for all levels from beginners to advanced.

- AL, Parent

My son seems to be getting more and more precise, which is great to see! I love seeing how proud he is of the projects he brings home.

- JT, Parent

My daughter loves the class and looks forward to it every week. She is always so proud of what she’s made and can’t wait to show me her masterpieces.

- JL, Parent

My son will miss the after school class after he goes to middle school! We will definitely try to make your Sunday class whenever he doesn’t have a soccer game (soccer is his other hobby, his coach said his techniques are very clean and precise, probably from origami!)

- AL, Parent

My daughter learned a lot from Ms. Halina's class - not only about the origami skills, but also patience to keep figuring out the complexity of things that she newly encountered.

Above all, I as a parent am grateful to see she genuinely enjoyed the joy of origami in this class.  Thank you for such a fun class for my daughter and friends.  We are looking forward to the next semester!

My daughter has always loved origami, and she enjoys going to the class every time. Folding an origami through book is difficult, and it is very challenging for younger grade elementary child to fold on their own. It was also hard for me that I had to give up sometimes. However, In the class, she can learn how to fold while being taught by the teacher, so even beginners can enjoy it. Since my daughter started going to the class, she has learned how to fold more carefully to make it to more beautiful piece at the end. It's also a good opportunity to learn Japanese traditional handicrafts even in America.
