Children's Artwork from Tohoku workshop

This workshop at the Japan Society is part of its "One Year Later: A Day of Reflection" event to commemorate the first anniversary of the devastating earthquake-tsunami that hit Japan last winter. Participants take in an exhibit of artwork created by preschool kids in Fukushima, Japan—one of the areas hardest hit by the earthquake-tsunami—in the summer of 201. Smiling faces, sunflowers and hearts are just some of the works' subject matter. There will also be photographs of works made from earthquake debris by a set of elementary schoolers in Ishinomaki, in Miyagi. In response to those images, children can draw pictures or write a note to express their thoughts and emotions; their work will be photographed and shared with people in Tohoku, and a selection of works will be hand-delivered to the region this summer. Preregistration is recommended.
