Japanese Aesthetics Club

The aim of the Japanese Aesthetics Club is to help the Dickinson community get a better understanding of the Japanese art and culture. Each month the club will focus on one aspect of art in Japan, whether it be a visual or performing art. For example, one month we will concentrate on ikebana, Japanese flower arranging. The Japanese Aesthetics club will have ikebana workshops with guest instructors and hold events, including an ikebana contest where participants will compete to create the finest flower arrangement that depicts the chosen theme the best. Besides learning the art of ikebana, the Japanese Aesthetics Club will also offer tea ceremony lessons, calligraphy workshops, origami tutorials, cooking and baking sessions, and other Japanese art forms. In addition, our club hopes to work with other clubs, such as the Anime Club, Gastronomy Club, and Club A.S.I.A. to appeal to a wider demographic. Our club also hopes to have trips to various Japanese related locations and events, such as the Shofuso house or the DC National Cherry Blossom Festival. Traditional Japanese visual and performing arts have a very spiritual and calming effect on the human psyche, which is perfect for stressful college students. In the Japanese Aesthetics Club we hope to relieve any built up tensions by providing the members with a place of relaxation and by creating a serene atmosphere to the Dickinson community.

We hope to expand knowledge and understanding on the regions and Latin American and Caribbean cultures within the Dickinson student body.
