Several rowboats and larger boats are pulled in along a sandy shoreline, surrounded by a body of glimmering, topaz-blue water with emerald-green hills in the background in this horizontal, color woodblock print. Five Japanese characters are written in the margin of the paper near the lower right corner. The name "Okiie Hashimoto" is written in graphite under the lower right corner of the printed image, and more Japanese characters are written in graphite under the lower left.

In honor of Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month, Okiie Hashimoto's Fishing Boats in the Morning is the inspiration for this interactive conversation.

Join us and share your observations, interpretations, questions, and ideas, and build on your own first impressions to broaden your understanding of this work of art. This session lasts one hour and is completely interactive. 

National Gallery educators will facilitate the conversation to create an environment for shared learning. These conversations will encourage you to engage deeply with art, with others, and with the world around you as you hone skills in visual literacy and perspective-taking.

This program is free and open to the public and is designed for anyone interested in talking about art. No art or art history background is required. Ages 18 and over.

Due to the interactive nature of this program, sessions are not recorded.
