Sumi-E Japanese Brushstroke Painting

Level: Teen/Adult
Medium: Sumi-E
Ages: 16+

In this 2 Saturday workshop you will learn a manner of using a brush that can be incorporated into any artistic practice.
You will become familiar with 3 basic brushstrokes and use them to paint at least one of what are called 'The Four Gentlemen' - bamboo, wild orchid, chrysanthemum and plum blossom - as well as other subjects.
The students will have input into what subjects they wish to try.

This artform is over 2000 years old.
It is non-toxic, using very few supplies, all of which are hand-made although the paper used in the workshop will be machine-made.

Location: The Make Space room at FortyOne: Local Art Market, 41 Victoria Street East, Alliston

"Sumi-e is a way of approaching life. Working constantly toward perfection in all one does, realizing it takes time and practice. I have painted in sumi-e or Japanese brushstroke painting, for more than 35 years. I have been studying Japanese calligraphy since 2009. SEE MORE>>
