Printmaking Workshop for Families with Patricia Wakida
In person at the museum
Artist Patricia Wakida leads a linoleum carving and printmaking workshop for families inspired by Color Trip: Yoshida Hodaka's Modern Prints.
This interactive family workshop (recommended for ages 10 and up) with Patricia Wakida takes inspiration from Color Trip: Yoshida Hodaka’s Modern Prints. Participants will create a design using motifs and elements seen in the exhibition, learn how to carve it using soft linoleum, and then print their design using colorful ink. The museum’s Art Speak interns will provide assistance with carving tools.
Space is limited; pre-registration is required. Materials will be provided.
