Get expressional with some Sumi-E brush painting.
This class will begin with an introduction to bamboo-brushes and our teacher will demonstrate the different brushworks with Sumi ink. The workshop will be split into multiple sessions, each beginning with a teacher demonstration. Each time you will try a different topic which will involve different types of techniques and brush strokes. The first section will be simpler and the difficulty will increase slightly each time, until the final piece.
