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 making prints is called "Print Basic Course". Yes (reservation required).

In this course, you can learn the basics of copperplate, lithographic, and silkscreen printmaking under your leadership.

This time, I experienced silk screen and copperplate printing!

First, try silk screen

Select the paint and transfer it to a paper cup.

I use it plenty, so pour it in line.

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 equal 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 if you repeat this with various colors and patterns, it seems that different works will be completed again.

next…
Try a little bit on copperplate prints!

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, you can return to your childhood and learn how to make and learn prints.
If you want to participate, please check the Yokohama Museum of Art website.

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

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 helped to support the print room experience!

A variety of 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.
