Our art was inspired by the Japanese art of ukiyo-e and the artist Katsushika Hokusai. We sketched our image of Mount Fuji then traced it onto printing foam. We then carefully carved the image onto the foam before painting the foam and printing onto paper. We repeated the printing process several times adding a different colour each time.
