coffee and craft workshop Japanese Sumi ink Painting
September 14 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm$45
Sumi-e is traditional Japanese black ink painting: where the practitioner attempts to express complex feelings and subjects with simple, minimalistic black Sumi ink (derived from charcoal) strokes. These simple strokes are the key to making an expressive yet tranquil painting. Sumi-e originated from Zen Art, which Buddhist monks and Samurai used to meditate and develop discipline. Due to the nature of this art form, even a participant who feels they have no artistic ability should be able to create a very nice work of art. In this workshop, we will paint simple and fun subjects from nature like fish, plants, animals, and clouds.
Cost for this workshop is $45 and includes materials. Coffee and pastries are provided by Tryon Coffeehouse Co-op.
