  • Pencil
  • Origami paper (works the best for its thickness and shape. If not available, construction paper or tissue paper could also work). Paper cutouts for Lunar New Year are traditionally in red, but it's your choice. It's not uncommon to see other colors for paper cutout decorations during Lunar New Year today, especially among the younger generation.

  • MAD Museum of Art and Design champions contemporary makers across creative fields, presenting artists, designers, and artisans who apply the highest level of ingenuity and skill to their work. Since the Museum’s founding in 1956 by philanthropist and visionary Aileen Osborn Webb, MAD has celebrated all facets of making and the creative processes by which materials are transformed, from traditional techniques to cutting-edge technologies. Today, the Museum’s curatorial program builds upon a rich history of exhibitions that emphasize a cross-disciplinary approach to art and design, and reveals the workmanship behind the objects and environments that shape our everyday lives. MAD provides an international platform for practitioners who are influencing the direction of cultural production and driving 21st-century innovation, fostering a participatory setting for visitors to have direct encounters with skilled making and compelling works of art and design.
