Enrol Now and Learn the Art of Black Ink Painting

We are NOW OPEN for new member enrolment for our Japanese Black Ink Painting for Beginners Online Program course. JOIN NOW through midnight on the 18th of April 2023.

Join us in this online blended learning program where beginners will learn brushstrokes and techniques for painting grasses, flowers, trees, mountains and landscapes. Japanese Black Ink Painting (Sumi-e) is a unique art form using only black ink, handmade paper and a special brush. It is a calming and relaxing activity.

The program involves live group learning online sessions including guidance and feedback to improve personal progress, access to pre-recorded instructional videos members can watch in their own time, as well as Pop-Up Zoom Cafés (where people can meet up for tea and a chat), a private members art community area where members can keep in touch, and a private WhatsApp group.

Each subscriber can decide on their own way to engage with the many different aspects of the program to suit their own needs, level of experience and availability.

Membership subscription for this enrolment period: Choice of Monthly Membership subscription or Yearly Membership subscription (with 12 months for the price of ten). The membership subscription will never increase as long as members remain in good standing.
