Gyotaku – Japanese Fish Printing

Learn about the environment through the art of Gyotaku – Japanese fish-printing – with CultureALL Ambassador Dell Radcliffe.

Workshop Description

In this hands-on workshop, students will use paint brushes to coat freshly-caught fish with tempura paint, then press an image onto paper, creating a take-home of traditional art, known as Gyotaku or Japanese Fish Printing. Through the process, students discover the bond between the environment and culture, and gain an appreciation for water quality and environmental health.
