Japanese Haiku and Landscape


Program description

Students write their own Haiku, based on the seasons, natural Landforms or another chosen theme, then “illustrate” their poem by creating a watercolor painting to elaborate the small details. The format is similar to a Japanese scroll, and when the paintings and poems are done, they may be hung and displayed.
