Sumi-e is a remarkable art form that uses only black ink, handmade paper, and a special brush.
This new six week online course will be starting on the 18th of November. The Introduction to Sumi-e: Japanese Black Ink Painting course will include weekly live group learning sessions on Zoom and access to successively-released pre-recorded lessons which can be viewed in your own time.
Students will learn basic brushstrokes and techniques for painting grasses, flowers, trees, mountains and landscapes. The emphasis is on the process rather than the finished work.
Sumi-e is an art form that teaches self-awareness and helps the artist learn to see and feel. The mind must be clear and the body relaxed. In Japanese Black Ink Painting, the fewest possible brushstrokes are used to capture the essence of the subject being painted. It is a beautiful, unique and expressive art form.
Relax and enjoy learning the Art of Black Ink Painting.
