The summer art program in Japan, begun in 2008, is focused on viewing and experiencing both traditional and contemporary cultures in Japan. Students visit temples, shrines, galleries, studios, markets, museums, and stores. Travel includes Tokyo and Kyoto, with side trips to Hiroshima, Fukui, Osaka and Nara. Highlights include a tea ceremony in Kyoto, papermaking in Fukui, a visit to Kyoto Seika University, and Nishijin weaving center in Kyoto. The trip is led by Julia Sapin and Seiko A. Purdue.
This year, students spent two nights in Echizen, Fukui to experience the regional papermaking using Kozo (mulberry bark) fiber. The handmade paper works in the exhibition were all made in Echizen, Fukui.
Echizen is also known for its pottery. Students made bowls using the regional clay led by the professional Echizen pottery artist. The students' works were fired there and will be sent to the shipped here in January.
