Fish Art at the Fair!

Copper River Watershed Project will be offering fish printing at the Kenny Lake Fair on August 15, 2015. Bring your own shirt, canvas bag or sweatshirt and make a custom print!

“Fish” and “art” do go in the same sentence when you’re talking about making fish prints!  The Copper River Watershed Project will sponsor a booth at the Kenny Lake Fair, offering kids a free opportunity to express their creativity with fish printing.  Also called “gyotaku” (“gyo” for fish + “taku” for rubbing), fish printing originated as a way for Japanese fishermen to record the size of their most prized catches.

Bring your own t-shirt, canvas bag, sweatshirt or some other item you’d like to print on, and we’ll supply the rest.   See you at the fair on August 15!
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
The Copper River Watershed Project works to build a watershed community for the benefit of all the area’s creeks and streams that support the salmon and wildlife on which we depend.  Stop by our booth at the Kenny Lake Fair to learn more about our programs for fish passage restoration, invasive weed management, watershed education, and tourism development.  We work on these issues throughout the watershed because upriver and down, salmon are common ground.
