“Learn technique and then dispense with it.” A few bold brush strokes render leaves, flower petals, grasses, branches and all manner of wildlife. This class will begin with a short explanation of the origins of Sumi painting and the materials needed. By the second day, students will be using rice paper and making beautiful paintings. The lab fee will pay for all the materials needed for this class.
