“Paint Like” Hokusai, The Great Wave of Kanagawa
Partnership with DukeCreate & VisArts
About the Workshop
Hokusai was a famous Japanese artist who created multiple prints, carvings, and paintings of the sea. The Great Wave off Kanagawa (c. 1829-1833), also known as The Great Wave or simply The Wave, is a woodblock print by the Japanese ukiyo-e artist Hokusai, and was published sometime between 1829 and 1833. In this workshop we will create a beautiful rendering of The Great Wave of Kanagawa using paint and canvas.
