The Yokohama Museum of Art, with a focus on “seeing, creating, and manabu,” has many charms that cannot be completed simply by appreciating art.

At the far right 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 "print basic course" is offered for those who want to start print production (4 or 6 courses in total). Yes (reservation required).

In the course, you can learn the basic production of copper engraving, lithograph, and silk screen engraving under the guidance of an instructor.

This time, I had the opportunity to experience silkscreen and copper engraving!

First try silk screen

Select the paint and transfer it to the paper cup.

Since I use it quite a lot, pour it in a line.

Put the paint in the silk screen frame where the design is made...

A uniform squeegee, such as a spatula, is used to move back and forth over the picture while maintaining uniform force.

Then it was done!

The ink passes through the screen and is printed on the paper below, so it's very easy and fun!

One color alone creates an artistic atmosphere, but it seems that different colors and patterns can be used to create different works.

next…
Just try a little bit on the engraving!

Why don't you remember the art of drawing when you were a child?

This is a print press. It seems that the trick is to apply pressure evenly while rotating the roller at a constant speed.

This roller is much heavier than it looks! Actually, the work of turning is also a hard work.

In this way, it is very fun to have a print lesson where you can return to your child's heart, make and learn.
If you would like to participate, please check the Yokohama Museum website.

In addition to the prints, there is a space and facilities where you can learn various art such as drawing in the painting class and sculpture in the three-dimensional room.

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

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

This time, the educator Mr. Sakuraba was able to support the experience of the print room!

Various workshops are held in the "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.
