Summer 2015 Korea & Japan PSOA program participants traveled to South Korea and Japan where they visited local attractions (traditional village, museums, art districts, and artists’ studios), attended workshops, and participated in unique cultural practices with faculty program leader Jessica Meuninck-Ganger from the Peck School of the Arts Department of Art and Design, and program assistant Rina Yoon, a Professor at the Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design (MIAD).
While at the Daeseung Hanji Paper Mill in Wanju, South Korea, they attracted the attention of a South Korean newspaper which featured them in an article.
During this program, students produced bodies of work that include a variety of traditional and contemporary paper, paper craft, printmaking, and book arts applications.
