March 5 | Free Fish Screen Printing and Painting Workshop




JOIN US FOR A FISH SCREEN PRINTING AND PAINTING WORKSHOP 
GW CORCORAN SCHOOL OF ART

SATURDAY MARCH 5, 12:00 - 2:00PM OR 2:00 - 4:00PM



For the second year, ArtReach is partnering with the GW Corcoran School of Art printmaking department, 11th Street Bridge Project and the National Park Service to provide a series of screen printing and painting workshops and to host a Fish Bike Parade at the Anacostia River Festival in April. 
Inspired by the Japanese tradition of creating carp-shaped flags known as “Koinobori,” participants will create a set of fish windsocks representing fish that can be found in the local Anacostia waters, including the Shad, Pumpkinseed and Snakehead fish. With information provided by GW’s Biology department and the Anacostia Watershed Society, these workshops will give participants the opportunity to learn more about local ecology and history and participate in a collaborative art-making project. 
Visit our ArtReach Facebook page to see photographs from last year's fish bike parade!

PLEASE JOIN US AND CREATE A FISH WINDSOCK OF YOUR OWN!
