Upcoming Event: Gyotaku Fish Printing Workshop with Artist Bruce Koike

posted in: Uncategorized | 0

We are thrilled to announce that we are collaborating with artist Bruce Koike to host a Gyotaku Fish Printing Workshop! Gyotaku is a traditional Japanese art that uses fish to create realistic prints. For any fish enthusiast, this is a fantastic (fintastic?) opportunity to create fish art. On Friday April 26th from 6-9 pm at the Seymour Center Teaching Lab, you can learn to make stunning, realistic fish prints from a master.

Bruce’s Gyotaku art reflects the design and beauty of fishes: “These animals are perfectly adapted to live in diverse habitats, whether in rivers or in the deep ocean. Gyotaku is the perfect medium to reflect the dynamics of aquatic life. Gyotaku can highlight the individual fish, illustrate interactions of multiple fish, or illustrate the specific habitat where the animal lives”. Regarding the anatomy of the fish or invertebrate, Bruce seeks to display the organism with a sense of realism.

The price of the workshop includes high-quality materials and 3 hours of individualized instruction. A $20 deposit is required, with the remainder of the class cost due directly to Bruce on April 26. Make your deposit and reserve your spot here on our EventBrite page!
