Hi Ron,
There is an article agout Gyotaku in Smithsonian magazine, but I
don't know which issue (I pulled it out of the magazine) I got some
information when I "surfed the net" on Gyotaku.

At a museum "family day" there's not a lot of time for explanations. Do
any of you museum folk have any ideas about how to make the hands-on
activities more "educational" when people are wandering in and out? I
use posters, but find most of the learning has to be intrisic in the
activity--kind of old school art education, I guess. Of course, the
activities are tied into the exhibition and we are hoping people are
making connections. But are they?

I'd like more info on Gyotaku also--anyone?
