Creative Minds / Origami

Who are we?


    We are a Youth Club building a friendship and leadership through making Origami for teens. Origami is the paper folding art from Asia and had become popular in the states over the years. And kids in NJ are finding it as a tool to build the friendship as well as a valuable tool to help others who are in needs. 

Origami is the fundamental tool of making art works but adapting other materials and ideas will broaden one’s mind to see how one connects to the others. Paper Kids is a youth group formed by Kevin Ju, Andrew Qin, Kyle Schubert, Brian Yoon (President), Jimmy Yu, and Daniel Woo 

who have high prospects to educate and share the fun and building a friendship by making origami in 2012. 

Announce coming events


  •    First Paper Folding Contest will be hosted by TheArtsandMore, Inc in 2018 May (TBA).  Details will be announced in January 2018. 
  • December Holiday Workshop in December 2017. 

What we do


   Paper kids donate their works to various places, including hospitals, libraries and groups where other kids can enjoy their works. All members have been teaching community members and other kids how to make Origami through workshops and presentations in the libraries, museums, schools, nurseries and hospitals in NJ and NY.
