Art with the Masters

2017 Art with the Masters 1040 x 425 With Dates - Copy

Featured Artist: Julianna Wells

Join us as we learn the Japanese art form of Suibokuga, a unique form of ink wash painting. Artists traditionally used sumi ink on Washi paper with varying degrees of water to create a tonal gradation. Experience the beauty of this art form in each brush stroke as it expresses and captures the spirit of what is being depicted. Learn about the history of the medium, about how the Sumi ink is ground, and how to paint with it on traditional Washi paper. Light refreshments will be provided throughout the workshop.
