Program Reviews:
Carissa Ann Kemnitz, Summer 2016 Participant
I learned more about myself and I found peace and tranquility while immersing myself in a new culture. I discovered what my tastebuds enjoyed or turned away from by trying everything presented to me. I learned to constantly take photos but to also seize the moment without the camera. I found Independence and strength I did not know existed.

Der Lee, Summer 2014 Participant
My favorite part of this program were the artist residencies I was able to participate in, such as Awagami Paper Factory and the Mokuhanga Printmaking Artist Residency as well as the special cultural experiences such as the Kabuki Theatre performance, wonderful food, and the temples!

Being able to learn ancient Japanese paper making traditions was an incredibly valuable experience. Whether or not you have a specific interest or application for learning Japanese papermaking, just having the opportunity to learn and process was incredibly special.
