The month of October at BRE is the month of Japanese Art and Culture. I have Koi Fish, Gyotaku, Sumi, and Scrolls coming out of my ears!
While preparing the paint for the K-1's cherry blossom tree scrolls I realized that I had a teachable moment on my hands. Along with looking like a sunny side up red fried egg, the paint trays also looked a lot like the Japanese flag. As a class we all took a moment and soaked in this fact before swirling the paint into a marbleized tornado of cherry blossom pink:)
