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.
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.
