The Japanese American Cultural and Community Center presents this season’s first On the Veranda Lecture Series, Traditional Japanese Printmaking “Ukiyo-e” on Sunday, Nov. 21, from 1-3pm in the JACCC Garden Room.

Two master printers from the Adachi Institute in Tokyo, Japan will conduct a woodblock print workshop, recreating the image of historic Japanese artworks. Employing the same skills, techniques and materials that were used by the original woodcut printmakers of the 18th and 19th centuries, the completed prints will reveal the vibrancy of colors of the original work.

This workshop demonstrates first-hand the skill and techniques used to create classic original works of art.

The workshop will be held at the Garden Room of the JACCC building, 244 South San Pedro Street, Los Angeles, CA 90012. General admissions are $20, and $15 for JACCC members. Space limited. Reservations highly recommended. For more information or reservations call (213) 680-3700.

This program is made possible in part by The Japan Foundation, Los Angeles and Hiromi Paper International.
