Gyotaku!

Thursday, May 1, 2014
Gyotaku! A few months ago, Mrs. George’s second grade class took notice of our Cline aquarium. Upon close observation, they realized the fish in the tank didn’t match the fish that were listed on the bulletin board. For weeks, they researched these fish and discovered SO MANY new things about the African Cichlid! Did you know they have egg spots??? Neither did we! Did you know they mouth brood??? Neither did we! Did you know they can only be found in two lakes in the world??? Neither did we! EVERYONE involved, both students and adults, learned a lot during the course of their research project! Many of those facts can now be seen displayed around the fish tank across from the art studio. While our installation is not quite complete, we’re in the finishing stages! As a special surprise, Mrs. George and I decided to let the kids participate in a VERY special art project: Gyotaku (gee-oh-tah-koo)… literally defined as “fish impressions.” This form of art developed in the 1800′s on Japanese shipping vessels. Since the art form we know as photography did not yet exist, these prints served as a way for fishermen to record and document their catches! Thanks to a generous donation from our local family owned fish market, Foremost Seafood, we were able to give the students the experience of creating prints from actual fish!!! For our activity, we used a striped Bass and several Croakers! First the fish were washed and dried. Then we prepared them but fanning out and pinning their fins in place so we could see them. Once our fish were prepped, we learned how to make a print. We chose colors and then began painting our fish! After the fish were painted, we carefully laid a thin piece of white paper on top of the fish and gently rubbed the fish body (making sure to get all the fins, mouth and sides) to transfer all the paint to our paper! This was the first time any of us have made a fish print (including Mrs. Carlson and Mrs. George), so the resulting prints were VERY exciting! Read More
