What you'll do
We guide Michio Yagi's studio (atelier). Michio explain about his art works there. He's known as "A painter of a clown". This is because he has painted lots of pictures of clowns to express his emotion such as anger, sorrow, delight and joy. After studio tour, Michio provides a simple lecture on painting or calligraphy. After the lecture create your own artwork or calligraphy. Through this experience, we wants to tell and inspire people that it is possible for anyone to make their dreams come true regardless of age, sex, physical impairments, and any other difficulties. This is because Michio never gave up on his dream of becoming a artist despite the fact that people around him tried to convince him not to aim to be a painter as he was with hearing impairments.
