field biologist uses art to connect with students

FishPaintingCurrent

Last year Kyle Hicks, a field biologist with Nova Scotia Power in Lakeside, was approached by a local artist about getting fish samples for her art. Kyle was intrigued as to what the fish were for, and found out they were to be used for making Gyotaku or fish paintings. Interested in the process, Kyle learned the century old Japanese art of painting fish to document their appearance.

“Before cameras, Gyotaku was used by fisherman to provide proof of their catch by preserving the size and shape of the fish,” explained Kyle. “The fish are painted with a special ink and then rice paper is carefully laid over the inked surface and smoothed out. The paper is then lifted or peeled off the fish leaving a nice detailed print on the paper.” 

Today, Kyle continues to paint fish and was recently approach by the Booker School in Port Williams to teach an art and science class about fish painting. Students, grades 6 through 8, were able to paint four different species of fish that were donated by anglers, by fish hatcheries, and bought at the local grocery store.

“They really enjoyed the activity,” said Kyle. “And I was able to tell the students about my job at NS Power with Environmental Services and the work we do, with an emphasis on fish and science.”
