Bamboo Brushes and India Ink


Second grade students are learning about Japanese artists including Hiroshige and Hokusai.  They learned that Hiroshige painted dreamy, beautiful paintings that included peaceful, soft moods.  Hokusai, on the other hand, created powerful and bold waves, waterfalls and other strong prints.  They saw videos about woodblock prints, they studied lines in Hokusai's work, they experimented with sum-e tools like bamboo and ink, and they invented their own landscapes in both ink and watercolors.  I am proud of what they have learned and what they have made!
