Entering Works in Art Competitions
The print produces numerous sheets from a single original plate, allowing an even greater number of people to see and experience the art work. The students in this course enter their works in a variety of print competitions, and many of them receive awards in a variety of exhibitions. Displaying one’s own work to the public awakens in the artist a sense of both responsibility and self-awareness, thus furthering one’s own growth beyond the work itself. Students also enjoy close interactions with teaching faculty as they create art works, another aid to greatly expanding their own potential.
Working as a Print Artist
Miss Sato, who graduated from the graduate school in 2004, is already a member of the Shun’yôkai and a member of the Nihon Hanga Kyôkai. Her works have been received in numerous international print competitions and she is active as a printmaker. She has received requests for exhibitions from a number of galleries and is continuously busy with her printmaking.
Illustrated Book Creation
Prints are also known as graphics, and they are related to the production of books. A use of print that differs from that of single image prints is the creation of manuscript versions of illustrated books in printed form. Miss Hiwatari, a 2007 graduate, created her own original illustrated book about a kitten, in print form, and published the work.
