Korean Culture Club’s Bojagi Art Project

Contributed by Rachel Brusky, Upper School Visual Arts Faculty Member

This year in the Korean Culture Club, headed by Co-Presidents David Aaron ’16 and Sarah Khym ’17 and advised by Jane Park (who attended the Sejong Korea Trip in 2011), students create artworks inspired by bojagi, a traditional Korean wrapping cloth. For the project, students used tissue paper, handmade textured papers, canvas, and acrylic gloss medium to create colorful mosaic pieces that are reminiscent of translucent fabric bojagi. The process for this project was developed and taught by visual arts teacher Rachel Brusky, who attended the Sejong Korea Trip in 2014 and who was first trained in bojagi during a six-week intensive course at the Rhode Island School of Design during her time there as   a student. Artwork from the Korean Culture Club Bojagi Project was on display in the Imperatore Library during the month of May.
