A lot of parents and children came to see KCG's "Draw and Shoot! Drawing Workshop".A large mosaic art work representing cultural assets on display at the Kyoto National Museum is also on display at the Kyoto Aquarium "Exchange Plaza" on July 8, 2017.

The KCG Group, including The Kyoto College of Graduate Studies for Informatics (KCGI) and Kyoto Computer Gakuin (KCG), has been held since July 2017 in collaboration with the Kyoto Aquarium (Shimogyo Ward, Kyoto City) and the Kyoto National Museum (Higashiyama Ward, the same city). The event “Draw and take a picture! We are cooperating with the "Drawing Workshop".At the aquarium's "Exchange Plaza," where the event is held, KCG student staff and faculty members use the latest information technology (IT) to project children's drawings of fish onto original frames on the wall and take commemorative photos.The event runs through Sept. 3 and will be held one day a week, Saturday or Sunday.

"Draw and film! At the "Drawing Workshop," KCG staff will make mosaics of pictures of Japanese pond turtles, carp, lobsters, clams and octopuses, which were submitted by children from all over the country in advance, and exhibit seven large-scale artworks representing cultural properties on display at the Kyoto National Museum.A total of 10,000 works are displayed per panel, again utilizing KCG's state-of-the-art technology.

The purpose of "Aquarium and Museum" is to let children learn about the background of the artworks by comparing the creatures appearing in the artworks displayed at the Kyoto National Museum with those swimming in the Kyoto Aquarium.In addition to the workshops conducted by KCG, various other events will be held.For more information, please see below.
