Please Note: You must register a ticket for each attendee (including adults) in advance, as space is limited.
Discover the Japanese art of Gyotaku, using rubber fish molds and paint to make fish prints. Most of this class will be spent learning to how to make and perfecting your fish prints. We will also learn about the basic anatomy of a fish, and the importance of this unique art form to scientists. Our summer campers love this educational art project. Muslin and paper for printing will be provided free of charge, but you are welcome to bring a plain t-shirt or canvas bag to decorate with prints. This program is open to 2nd-8th grade students accompanied by an adult, and takes place in the BIC only.
Two classes are being offered on Tuesday, April 8, at 2:30-3:30 p.m. and at 4-5 p.m.
In the event you are unable to attend, please contact us as soon as possible, so someone else has the opportunity to participate. You can reach Jeanette Henderson, Program Manager, at (616) 526-7601 or email@example.com.
