“We feel honored to host Yutaka Ai, an established Japanese artist, calligrapher, and tea practitioner. Ai, who comes to class in her grandmother’s kimono, strives to create an authentic cultural experience for students. She begins by pouring organic Japanese matcha tea and sharing traditional confections to establish an atmosphere of Zen-like, calm attentiveness.”
