Theme: Bambú (Introduction)
For the materials, it is difficult to shop around freely in this COVID-19 situation so I made an “alternative” list so that you can start now. Please see below.
The class has limited seats and we paint step by step and it adapts to all levels. So you can attend either if you are going to start this technique or if you are already a great enthusiast. Previous knowledge is not necessary. You complete a few final works of each theme.
In the class, we will introduce the materials that are selected to teach traditional Sumi-e, Japanese painting art correctly and you can buy them online: brushes, ink, rice paper, Japanese “Ganzai” color paintings among all. For other materials we could use many recycled objects that could be found easily around the house.
The teacher is Japanese and has a teacher certificate of Sumi-e from the International Sumi-e Association in Tokyo.
If you want to continue Sumi-e, we practice a theme in one or two classes: plum blossom, birds, waterfalls, mountains … and when you practice all the subjects of the basic course and all the final works of each subject are presented, you will receive a certificate of completion and you go up to the advanced level course.
