Last week, Mr. Bokunen Naka, the famous artist of HANGA (woodblock print) visited at AMICUS.
He came to see our Grade 4’s huge art piece. Grade 4 students were blessed to have question and answer session with him.
A boy asked him “Why you became a professional artist as an occupation?”
He answered “It is because I want to share how I feel with everyone.
It makes me very happy when someone feels same way about what I think interesting or beautiful.
I was fortunate that people started buying my works. Then people started calling me an “Artist”.
That’s how I became a professional artist.”
All Grade 4 students were so thrilled to be with Mr.Bokunen.
Wood block print learning experience at AMICUS may motivate some of our students to become an artist in the future!
