Beautiful Birdhouses

 Our feathered friends will surely love the birdhouses my students created. They are simply wonderful. I wanted to take all of them home and hang them in the trees around my yard.

Gyotaku Fish Printmaking

Gyotaku: Gyo means fish and taku means rubbing. The art of gyotaku was developed in the early 1800's to record a fisherman's catch. Remember, there were no camera's back then to capture an image of a fish. Our class learned the parts of a fish and saw how to create a print from a real fish as well as creating incredible prints from our fish molds. We also got to touch the little teeth of a real fish! Here are some of the pictures of the beauty we captured through our fish rubbings. What an amazing school of fish!
