Suminagashi

The Sprout kids participated in the Ancient Japanese Art of Marbling: Suminagashi (墨 流 し). Suminagashi translates to mean “floating ink.”  The Sprout kids will participate in the creative process of marbling rice paper with water and ink to transform it into a masterpiece of vibrant colors.  This art form began in Japan as early as the 12 century.  Other types of marbling techniques have been found in cultures such as Turkey, Persia and throughout Europe.
This Science and Art project today, will have us focus on patience, fine motor skills, creativity, a calming sense of mind, and perseverance.
