CMS art students make koinobori

Campbellsville Middle School art students are making koinobori wind socks to celebrate a Japanese holiday.

 

In Japan, on Children’s Day, people fly carp-shaped wind socks known as koinobori. The carp, which can swim up waterfalls, is used as a symbol for the holiday because it represents strength and courage.

 

To make their own, CMS students in Jo Ann Harris’s art classes are designing and drawing their own fish, attaching them to each other and stuffing them with recycled paper.

 

Students are using crayons, markers, watercolors, oil pastels and more to make their koinobori creations colorful.
