Yonkers Community Art In Action | Japanese Fish Painting

The participants will design a fish using craft paper. They will design and make their own patterns using stripes, dots or other shapes. All paper fish banners will be painted and the participants will be instructed to paint them in cold or warm colors. The resist technique will be introduced (oil pastels and watercolor paints). Samples of Japanese fish banners painted in warm or cool colors will be presented.

This is an introduction of how Children’s Day is celebrated in different cultures (in Japan in this case). It’s a national holiday in Japan.


Arts Alive Artist Grants are made possible with funds from the Decentralization Program (DEC), a regrant program of the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the NYS Legislature and administered by ArtsWestchester.

Space sponsor/provider: Philipse Manor Hall.
