In this one-day workshop, Carolyn Letvin will teach the process of making and enhancing prints made from fish.  Originating from Japan in the mid-1800s, Gyotaku prints are a form of nature printing, believed to have been used by fishermen to record their catches, subsequently becoming a popular art form of its own.  Using both acrylic paint and water-based ink, students will create beautiful prints, then learn how to enhance the image to make them come alive on the paper.  All supplies, including the fish, will be provided.
(This class will include a $10 materials fee directly paid to the instructor.)
