Yes we may all be stuck at home, but who says we can't travel!
In fact we can travel in even better ways - through art, theatre and stories of a country and even try out the art for ourselves. So whenever you do have a chance to visit that country, you already know it better than most!
Pomegranate launches the Art Country series and the first country on our list is Japan!
Yes, the land of the rising sun, Mount Fuji, tidal waves, dragons and art that reflects all of it! From print making to painting on screens to using available material at home like foil, we discover innovative ways to uncover the spirit of the Japanese masters.
This three session module will have each session focus on one form alongwith stories of the land and artist, prevalent culture, music, short video screenings on the art form, links to museums that exhibit the greats of this form and of course creating your own masterpiece which has been carefully planned to accommodate materials that you may already have at home
Our focus in these 3 sessions would be the Ukiyo-e world of Japan alongwith music and stories and of course art
Ukiyo-e is a genre of Japanese art which flourished from the 17th through 19th centuries. Its artists produced woodblock prints and paintings of such subjects as kabuki actors and sumo wrestlers; scenes from history and folk tales; travel scenes and landscapes; flora and fauna.
The term ukiyo-e translates as "pictures of the floating world"
The three sessions will focus on the following themes:
1) Landscapes using ink and water on paper
2) Japanese prints - relief prints using material available at home
3) Paintings and stories of Dragons - Making a dragon using foil paper
Session duration = 1.5 hours
