Sumi Ink Workshop
June 10 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Instructor: Ryoko Endo
Japanese sumi ink painting is one of the foundations of East Asian art. This technique relies on subtle, controlled brushwork using special black ink to achieve a delicate balance between inked areas and white background. In this workshop, students will learn how to produce complex imagery with just a few careful brushstrokes, and to write their name in Japanese kanji script, a major part of the Japanese writing system. All registered participants will be provided with the necessary art supplies to create and take home their own paintings.
