Origami is the art of paper folding. The goal is to transform a flat square sheet of paper into a finished sculpture through folding and sculpting techniques, without cuts, glue, or markings on the paper.

Jax, an eight year old 3rd grader from New York, is an origami enthusiast! He became interested in origami at the beginning of the pandemic and has taught himself this ancient art form by watching videos and reading origami books.

In recognition to the coming cicada infestation, Jax demonstrates how to make a cicada!
