Morning Workshop

     Sumi-e (Japanese Brush Painting)

  • 4-class series
  • Registration $70 for members and non-members
    • Full materials kit (optional), add $60 : The kit will include a roll of paper, an inkstone, inkstick and one brush (probably goat hair 1.5" long and 1/4" wide at the base), as well as a piece of felt and two paper weights.
    • Roll of rice paper(optional), add $25
  • Level: Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
  • Medium: Sumi-e or Japanese Brushstroke
  • Subject : Nature/floral/animal/bird

Sumi-e is a way of moving and breathing with each brush stroke being sensitive to the brush itself. With a minimum of brush strokes and just blacks/grays the participant will see how much can be left to the imagination while creating a piece that is both abstracted and real. Less is definitely more in this medium and the simpler it looks the more challenging it is to paint!

The students will learn a different way to manipulate the very sensitive oriental brush which can be applied to any medium.
