Welcome back Junko Azukawa with this special workshop on Japanese ink painting, known as Sumi-e. You will learn how to prepare your own ink then learn to make and use different Sumi ink tones and brush techniques to create traditional Japanese ink painting (Sumi-e) on Washi paper made from the mulberry tree. With Sumi-e, you will learn to feel and capture the meaning of objects from nature with your interpretation then you will express the objects variously with brush pressure, rhythm, tones and confidence in your strokes. You’ll not only learn brush stroke techniques but also experience the whole process and understand yourself through your work. Junko will introduce the materials, teach how to paint Bamboo to start with, then let students explore Koi fish, cherry blossoms, dragonfly, bird etc.  Junko is a gentle and experienced teacher who will help you produce up to 30 beautiful pieces within 3 creative and friendly hours.

All materials provided.
