Gyotaku Fish Printing (Youth Art Month Workshop)
GYOTAKU FISH PRINTING (Youth Art Month Workshop) grades 2–5
Instructor: Maureen Ahern
Gyotaku is a technique used by Japanese fisherman to record the size and species of a fish they caught. In Japan, they hold contests each year and use Gyotaku as proof of the catch. Participants will have an opportunity to learn about Japanese culture and printmaking as they use a variety of fish replicas and inks to create their own “gyo”-fish-“taku” impressions.
