Earlier this year, I happened to spot Taro’s Origami Studio when walking through Park Slope. I didn’t go in, but I guess I filed it away in the back of my head. Last week as we were working on origami projects in math art, I had the thought that we should totally check into going there on a field trip! I emailed them, but that bounced back. So this afternoon I dropped in, checked it out, met some people, filled out some field trip application forms, and snapped this photo of…I guess a griffon? King of the dragons? I’m not sure, but it was pretty awesome. Can’t wait til my students get a load of these incredible origami models!
