SUMI-E INK PAINTING: LANDSCAPE

Due to unforeseen circumstances all Sumi-e classes for this upcoming season have been cancelled. Anyone who has already purchased a class will be refunded.

Sumi-e is a form of Japanese ink painting brought from China in the 12th century. Primarily done in black ink, the name literally means “charcoal drawing” in Japanese. Students grind their own ink using an ink stick and a grinding stone and learn to hold and utilize brushes to create the primary sumi-e brushstrokes. Floral and landscape classes will start with a review of the basic techniques before moving on to the main subject.
