Product Description

Richard has been a member of the FRIEDA family early on. Richard walked in one day to learn about FRIEDA. Over lunch, he folded origami figures and a new friendship was born.


Richard is an art educator living in southern New Jersey. He has spent the past fifty years teaching children. Richard taught Art in Washington Township, as a high school and middle school teacher, before becoming an elementary classroom teacher for grades 3 through 6 in Williamstown, NJ. He has taught origami, the ancient art of paper folding, at the Evesham Library, the Moorestown Library, the United Methodist Church in Pitman, Medford Leas, Cherry Hill JCC, and FRIEDA in Philadelphia. His interest in origami began as a grade school student, creating inflatable paper balloons. He’s been folding paper ever since. He loves to get children and ‘children at heart’ of all ages excited by the self-discovery of the magic of folding a sheet of paper into 3-dimensional forms. Some of those forms include boxes, planes, puppets and animals.
