The Museum Shop at Yokohama Museum of Art, which focuses on "seeing, making, and manabu," has many attractions that do not end with art appreciation alone.

At the right end of the building are the "Children's Atelier" and the "Citizen's Atelier".

The "Citizen's Atelier" has a print room, a flat room, and a three-dimensional room. In the print room, a basic course (4 or 6 times in total) is offered for those who want to start making prints. (Advance reservation required).

In that course, you can learn the basic production of copperplate prints, lithographs, and silkscreen prints under the guidance of a leader.

This time, I had the opportunity to experience silk screen and copperplate prints!

First try silk screen

Choose a paint and transfer it to a paper cup.

I will use it quite a lot, so I will pour it in a row.

Drop the paint in the silk screen frame with the pattern on it ...

While equalizing the force, it is like a spatula called a squeegee, and it moves back and forth on the picture.

Then it was done!

The ink passes through the screen and is printed on the paper below, which is very easy and fun!

Even one color creates an artistic atmosphere, but if you layer this on top of each other with various colors and patterns, you will end up with a different work.

next…
Try a little bit on copperplate prints!

Do you not remember the drawing work when you were a child?

This is a print press. The trick is to apply pressure evenly while turning the rollers at a constant speed.

This roller is much heavier than it looks! The work of turning is actually hard work, isn't it?

In this way, it is very fun to return to your childhood and learn how to make prints.
If you would like to participate, please check the website of the Museum Shop at Yokohama Museum of Art.

In addition to prints, there are spaces and facilities where you can learn various arts such as drawing in the painting class and sculpture in the three-dimensional room.

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

It's also encouraging that the educator will support the production.

It was Mr. Sakuraba, an educator, who supported the experience of the print room this time!

Various workshops are held at the "Citizen's Atelier" at the Museum Shop at 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.
