Last Thursday the class had an opportunity to visit Fukuoka’s Hakata Doll Museum and participate in painting our very own Hakata doll.
I thoroughly enjoyed the intricacies in color coordination and hand painting my doll.
I now appreciate the artistry and the painstaking details that go into painting Hakata dolls.
Mistakes were made along the way but the paint and re-mixing it allowed for you to correct them.
Now whenever I see a Hakata doll anywhere I go in Fukuoka I realize what it takes to make them.
Thank you Hirose sensei for an enjoyable outing.
