As part of this project, we have sent Japanese art materials to Ruskin Land in Bewdley, UK, and they have sent us e.g. local charcoal and other materials in exchange. On the day there will also be a live feed between Yoyogi Park & Ruskin Land to create an interaction between the countries.
What to Bring: Your sketchbooks and favorite drawing materials, drinks and snacks, clothes suitable for the park, as well as bug spray and sun screen. Please invite also your family and friends!Above all, don’t forget to bring a willingness to create!
