The Korean Studies department introduces art, literature and diplomacy to NYC schools. We offer a wide range of engaging activities to students from elementary through high school. Past visits have included energetic drum dance lessons, the art of calligraphy and brush painting, folktale readings, talks by President Thomas Byrne, cooking demonstrations, and mask making. Through these activities, students are exposed to a culture which is otherwise inaccessible.

School visits are made possible through funding from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs.
