Events - Workshops - OTF_JBBeeton - Japanese Brushstroke - Adult [Ages 14+]

This 3 session course is an excellent opportunity to practice simplicity in your art. Sumi–e, also known as Japanese brushstroke painting, is noted for its spontaneity. In China this art was first practiced by the Zen priests to improve their spirituality and meditation through artistic concentration, inspiration and perfection. Instructor Roslyn Levin introduces students to Sumi–e in an approachable, inspirational way, working on rice paper with ink to create paintings with a classic elegance that portrays the artist's personal spirit. Students will begin with the basic brushstrokes, and practice their skills with traditional subjects such as crocuses, bamboo and pear, and others.

All materials are provided

Location: New Tecumseth Library, DA Jones Branch, 42 Main St W, Beeton
