Art Activity: Gyotaku (fish printing)

This fish printing activity is a traditional Japanese form of art called Gyotaku.  The children used real fish for this art activity.  First the children painted the fish, and then with the help of the teacher a piece of paper is pressed down on top of the fish.  When the paper is lifted off of the fish a print is revealed.
