In this workshop, you will learn the Japanese art of Sumi-e.
Sumi-e, also called Suibokuga, is the art of ink wash-painting. Characteristically, it is an East Asian art and has been practiced there for well over a thousand years. Sumi-e depicts the spirit or essence of an object or scene rather than its outward appearance — and does so in the fewest possible strokes.
Because of this simplicity, the painter’s character and personality come through in their work. In both viewing and creating, Sumi-e is a very contemplative form of painting. If you're looking for mindful art practices or ways to unwind, this meditative art might be just what you're looking for.
Your class is held in a Japanese cultural center in New York, where all students will start from the basics of ink-wash painting, such as how to hold a brush. All materials such as ink, brushes, calligraphy paper, and more will be provided for you to create your projects.
This hands-on art workshop is great for team-building activities, where you and your colleagues will enjoy some creative time, learn a new skill, and practice a peaceful art form.
