Sumi-E: The Art of Chinese BrushworkRosanne Hutton2022-08-22T12:42:01-05:00
Sumi-E is an artform that comes to us from China where it was practiced by Zen priests and later introduced in Japan because of its religious beginnings.
About the Art
Sumi-e painting often requires self-discipline, concentration, detachment, and contemplation.
Artists of many countries have adopted anyone of these disciplines and added sumi-e techniques which, in turn, create a simple, beautiful and restful effect. Through this practice the aspiring artist develops reverence for their work.
Basic strokes are then combined to forms of rocks, bamboo, pine needles, and more. Numerous illustrations provide different components for the artist to complete their own finished work.
There are currently no workshops on the schedule. Check back often for updates.
