The Yokohama Museum of Art, which focuses on seeing, making, and learning, has a lot of charm that can't end with art appreciation alone.

The children's atelier and the citizen's atelier are at the right end of the building.

In "Citizen's Atelier", there are a print room, a flat room, and a three-dimensional room. In the print room, a basic course (4 or 6 times course) for those who want to start printmaking is called "Print Basic Course". Yes (reservation required).

In this course, you can learn the basic production of copperplate prints, lithographs, and silkscreen prints under your leadership.

This time, I experienced silk screen and copperplate printing!

First, try silk screen

Choose a paint and transfer it to a paper cup.

As we use quite a lot, we pour in one by one.

Put the paint inside the silk screen frame where the pattern is prepressed ...

It is a squeegee, like a spatula, that moves back and forth over the picture, with even power.

Then it was done!

Ink is passed through the screen and printed on the paper below, making it very easy and fun!

One color alone creates a sufficiently artistic atmosphere, but it seems that a different work will be made again if this is repeated with various colors and designs.

Try a little bit on copperplate print!

Why don't you recall drawing as a child?

This is a printing press machine. The trick is to apply pressure evenly while rotating the roller at a constant speed.

This roller is so heavy than it looks! The work you do is actually a hard job.

In this way, I can return to my childhood and learn about making and learning prints.
If you want to participate, please check out the Yokohama Museum of Art website.

In addition to the prints, the space and facilities for learning various arts, such as drawing in a painting classroom and sculpture in a three-dimensional room, are available.

Each of them has an open studio where you can work on your own work, so if you like production, please check it out!

It is also encouraging that the educator supports the production.

This time, the educator Sakuraba-san supported the print-room experience!

Various workshops are held at "Citizen's Atelier" at the Yokohama Museum of Art.

    Yokohama Museum of Art opened to the public on November 3, 1989. It is one of the largest art institutions in Japan. With its iconic architecture, featuring the expansive space of the Grand Gallery, the museum is made up of a total of seven gallery spaces, as well as an Art Information and Media Center that holds over 110,000 art-related books, ateliers hosting a wide range of workshops for children and adults, and many other facilities.
    Located in the international seaport city of Yokohama, the museum focuses on collecting and showing modern and contemporary art created since the late 19th century, when the port of Yokohama opened, alongside many special exhibitions.
