Experience the spirit and exuberance of the contemporary, yet ancient, art of Japanese ink painting: sumi-e. Learn to create classic themes and techniques, called the Four Gentlemen: bamboo, orchid, chrysanthemum, and plum blossom. Each theme introduces a different stroke or idea. Students will end by painting a horse to celebrate 2014, the year of the horse.

In Japan, sumi-e was first introduced in the 7th Century AD by Japanese scholars returning from a visit to China. Chinese calligraphy and painting became uniquely adapted to Japanese culture and identity. Zen Buddhist priests also used sumi-e as a Zen exercise and discipline. Many Western artists, especially the Impressionists, studied sumi-e or have been influenced by its beauty and freedom of expression.
 All levels are welcome.

The instructor is: Shirley Lin Kinoshita

SHIRLEY LIN KINOSHITA is an experienced artist and instructor of Asian brush painting and watercolor. She has taught at Hakone Gardens, for adult education programs, and privately in her home. Shirley is an instructor and member of the Sumi-e Society of America.
