The Japanese Art of Gyotaku
with Suzanne Lewis 

Saturday, October 10
2 Sessions: 9am-noon or 1-4pm
Gyotaku involves painting a fish with non-toxic dyes, placing rice paper onto the fish, and extracting a print of the fish, an exact replica, once the art form is perfected. This was an art form developed in Japan by fishermen who wished to preserve an image of fish they had caught. This a simple printmaking technique that anyone can learn and practice at home. Please bring a mask to wear when not social distancing.
Materials, including fish, will be provided.
Location: 3rd Floor Masiello Studio/Outside weather permitting
Class Size Limit: 8 students per session

Materials Fee: $10 (to be given to instructor)

Members: $70/session or $120 for both

Artist's Day at the Museum of Natural History
at Roger Williams Park

Wednesday, October 14
The Museum is ours to explore with this private event! We will take over the Museum of Natural History and be free to discover, or rediscover, the fascinating collections in this hidden gem. You will roam the exhibition rooms of the ornate and historic building during an afternoon set aside for PAC artists only. Bring a small easel or chair and your drawing or painting materials, and choose your subject from the lifelike displays of Urban Wildlife, birds, bears and lions, Oceanic artifacts, even Lunar exploration. And there is so much more to discover! If there is a specific animal you’d like to draw, it may be among the hundreds of furred and feathered creatures in the museum’s vault. Just email kathy@providenceartclub.com with your request at least a week before the class.

Museum of Natural History teaching artist, and PAC staff member, Kathy Hodge will circulate for those who wish feedback, and at the end of the session, we will gather (socially distanced of course) to view and discuss each other’s work.
