Our new Android app: MidoriPaintingSoft

Hi! This is Hiro.
I collaborated on the development of an Android app with our programming student Midori (3rd grade). It’s called MidoriPaintingSoft, and you can download it from Google Play. It is made using only Processing.

You can open a photo and draw on it, or use it to keep your handwritten notes. It’s a free download so please give it a try!

Announcing Ali Hanoon’s Photography Workshop

We are happy to announce Spanish photographer Ali Hanoon’s photography workshop at Studio Kura. As a fun fact, he is Spanish like me and translation to and from Japanese will be trivial. Not that I don’t enjoy using the English language!

Ali will talk about his work, then we will go and take pictures around Studio Kura (it’s a beautiful place), and then we will come back, see everyone’s pictures, and exchange opinions with Ali.
