Anime', taken from the half of the Japanese pronunciation of "animation", in addition to manga, is extremely popular both in Japan and the United States. In Japan, anime' is considered an art form, and is hugely influential in the world of contemporary Japanese art.
These workshops, taught by local artist Paula Bullwinkel, will discuss the influence of classical Japanese calligraphy and printwork on anime', after which participants will create their own pieces of art that are based on contemporary Japanese artwork.
