Japanese and Chinese Aesthetics and Woodblock Printing
Explore the exhibition Multiple Impressions: Contemporary Chinese Woodblock Prints and gain an appreciation for the highly refined sense of beauty in Japanese and Chinese Art. We will consider some central themes of Buddhist and Shinto culture that inform these unique sensibilities. Students will learn basic woodblock printmaking and make a set of hand-printed note cards. All levels welcome.
Multiple Impressions was organized by the University of Michigan Museum of Art with the cooperation and support of the China Academy of Art, Hangzhou, China. It is made possible in part by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the Henry Luce Foundation, the E. Rhodes and Leona B. Carpenter Foundation, and the University of Michigan Center for Chinese Studies, Confucius Institute, and Office of the Senior Vice Provost for Academic Affairs.
