fish

Soren's class worked on fish paintings. By which I mean paint was applied to an actual fish (by an adult) and the kids then pressed paper against it. Soren produced this rather amazing fish print!

I don't know if this project was inspired by it, but apparently there is a 19th century Japanese art form called gyotaku ("魚拓," fish + rubbing) in which fishermen would use an edible, non-toxic calligraphy ink and rice paper to make prints to memorialize their best catches.
