This event is fully subscribed: please click here to be placed on the waitlist

Do you have a favorite place? Commemorate it on a decorative plate inspired by 20th century Japanese prints and ceramics. UMMA docents will lead a tour of prints by Saitô Kiyoshi that evoke specific places such as the Diag in Ann Arbor on a rainy day and a famous rock garden in Kyoto, as well as look at the aesthetics of Japanese ceramics and decorative arts. The tour will be followed by a hands-on workshop led by local artist Susan Clinthorne. Designed for families with children ages six and up to experience art together. Parents must accompany children.

This program is offered in conjunction with U-M Center for Japanese Studies’ Ann Arbor Japan Week, June 17-23.  Japan Week events at UMMA are generously sponsored by AISIN.

Family Art Studio is generously supported by the University of Michigan Credit Union Arts Adventures Program, UMMA's Lead Sponsor for Student and Family Engagement.
