Gyotaku–The Japanese Art of Fish Printing!

Friday, August 12, 10:00 am-3:30 pm

Join us for this fun family event! Gyotaku is the Japanese art of making prints from fish (we also use plastic fish molds, if you are a bit squeamish about

handling a real fish). We’ll provide all you need to make a print on paper. If you want, bring a tee shirt instead, and go home with wearable art!

To join us on Gyotaku Daysimply book your museum admission ticket to the museum online or drop into the museum that day!

Kalmus Beach Walk with Gil Newton

Thursday, August 25, 4:30-5:30 pm

Join us to learn about the marine plants and animals you can find at  Cape Cod beaches—mollusks, crabs, horseshoe crabs, seaweeds, and more! Our guide will be the ever-popular Gilbert Newton, marine science educator and the author of several books about the Cape’s shoreline. This is a great trip for anyone who wants to share the wonders of the Cape’s beaches, salt marches, sand dunes and tide pools with kids or grandkids. Meet at Kalmus Beach parking lot at the far end by the snack bar (670 Ocean Street in Hyannis; parking free after 4:00 pm).

Book here!

Thank you to our generous event sponsors:
