School | Fish Prints

Recently in art, my kids were studying the art of gyotaku, or fish painting, which originated in Japan. Originally a way for fishermen to record the measurements of their catches, it is now a treasured art form. In simple terms, paint is applied directly to fish scales and then placed on rice paper to record fine details. My students replicated this in art class by creating underwater scenes and then copying their fish into it. I was invited along to document the process!
