AMERICAN FORK — Greenery Arts, a company that promotes music, language and cultural education, is opening a new branch in American Fork.

Greenery Arts will be holding an open house to introduce its Mandarin-language program to the community May 19.

The school was originally opened by Dr. Wai Tat Wong in Hong Kong in 1988. According to its website, the school’s purpose is to not only educate students in music and art, but also improve the quality of their character through mental and physical health, as shown in its motto: “Strengthening Minds, Enriching Lives.”

The branch in American Fork is the first to open in the United States. It will be holding Mandarin classes this summer to review what students in the 17 Chinese immersion programs in Utah public schools have been learning during the school year and will also offer courses for those who have never learned Mandarin before.
