Hood Museum of Art. This discussion-based workshop introduces participants to the beauty and complexity of Japanese woodblock prints. Our exploration of these prints will take us from eighteenth- and nineteenth-century traditional ukiyo-e depictions of heroic and historical narratives and landscapes to early-twentieth-century shin hanga prints that capture the idealized beauty of Japanese women. In the studio, we will experiment with simple printmaking techniques to create our own prints.

No previous art experience necessary.

Space is limited. Call (603) 646-1469 by July 15 to register.
