Class Details: Sumi-e means black ink painting. Using black ink and creating a white space on the paper, you will paint spontaneously to capture the spirit of nature. The focus of the art of sumi-e painting is on the quality of the line and the brush stroke to capture the forms of nature. In this class I will demonstrate the techniques of sumi-e painting and you will practice and create a sumi-e painting of bamboo and/or flowers. I will give individual instruction, tips and ideas.
