Reflections on Water

Reflections on Water | The Great Wave off Kanagawa | Scoop.it

I suppose it was inevitable, the many faces of water. It’s not as though water was made for us. After all, it was here before us, and we sprang from it, even as it springs from the earth.

Mt. Fuji at Sunset | Rock Thoughts

Mt. Fuji at Sunset | Rock Thoughts | The Great Wave off Kanagawa | Scoop.it

This is how the story of Mt. Fugi at Sunset begins (by Kala B., grade 8).

I am one of the many paintings that Katsushika Hokusai made. I am an example of his passion for painting Mt. Fuji. He called me Mt. Fuji at Sunset. He painted me in 1848 which would be one of his last paintings because he died in 1849 and age 97! He was a Japanese artist and was Japan’s leading expert of Chinese painting. He went by more than 30 names during his lifetime but he is now known as Katsushika Hokusai. Throughout his lifetime, he taught more than 50 pupils.

Mt. Fugi at Sunset is part of a series of ‘Artist’ rocks created by students 8th grade Visual Arts Students in Mrs. Hahn’s class at Rogers Middle School, Minnesota, USA. We invite you to visit all RMS rocks and submit your comments and feedback.

Electric car, Hokusai III

Electric car, Hokusai III | The Great Wave off Kanagawa | Scoop.it

An electric car, Hokusai-III, was named after the Edo-period ukiyo-e painter Katsushika Hokusai who was from the same area as the 12-company group that produced the vehicle. The one-person car is kept lightweight with the use of aluminum in its body and employs energy-sipping LED lights. The car's builders were also particular about the car's interior look, crafting the steering wheel and dashboard out of wood.

Little Wonders school to hold student art show at Houston Museum of Natural Science | The Great Wave off Kanagawa | Scoop.it

While it is hard to underestimate the creative power of a child, some might find it easy to write off how capable a young person might be to analyze, understand and conceptualize art.

“We analyze the piece ‘The Great Wave,’ so when they look at the piece we look at what they see, what they feel and what they hear. They tell me, ‘it’s loud,’ and talk about the movement. They learn to look beyond a pretty picture.”
