Course Overview

This is an entry level course for people who have never had experience with Japanese style brush-and-ink painting (sumi-e). It is also a continuing course for previous students. We will learn the basic philosophy behind the practice of this art-form through learning and practicing the fundamental techniques which are used in all aspects of sumi-e. The techniques are simple, and when put together students will be able to create quality aesthetically pleasing works of art. In this art-form practice makes perfect. Because repetition is involved, students will go through many sheets of rice paper. We will progress from simple lines to full landscapes, and you will be creating works of art by the end of the course.
