Gyotaku (Japanese 魚拓, from gyo "fish" + taku "rubbing") is the traditional method of Japanese fish printing, dating from the mid-1800s. This form of nature printing may have been used by fishermen to record their catches, but has also become an artform on its own.
First graders are learning the art of GYOTAKU! Check back again for their completed fish prints surrounded with warm/cool colors!

First Graders loved learning about symmetry and were inspired by artist, Laurel Burch while creating their unique cats. Students worked with many geometric shapes and patterns! As you can see, they even
named their CATS!
