Rubbings with Artist Lana Yu

On Friday, March 10th, Cloud students will Zoom in with Hawaii-based artist Lana Yu. "Rubbings" are a fantastic way to capture the shape and texture of an object. It’s a technique that was used in the second century to disseminate ancient Confucian texts that were incised in stone. Later, this technique would be used to record leaf shapes and botanical samples. Let’s have fun exploring this fascinating technique!

For this activity, please come prepared with items that you are interested in "tracing." Some examples include leaves, coins, buttons, and rubber bands. More suggested materials to follow!
