Gyotaku 5th grade

Students learned about Gyotaku, the traditional Japanese method printing fish, in art class. They created a monotype print of some fish and learned the purpose in history for this nature print. Fisherman were able to record size, shape and texture of the fish which became a popular style of nature printing. We talked about the significance of cherry blossoms in the Japanese culture and decorated our prints with our own paper cherry blossoms.
