New project! No previous drawing or painting experience needed to fully participate in this Asian Zen-influenced art style. Express your spirit and individuality while creating a beautiful piece of art perfect for gifting or displaying in your own home.

Sumi means black ink and e means painting. Deborah Kollar, an accomplished Chinese Brush Stroke and Calligraphy artist, will demonstrate and provide guided practice as you:

  • Learn to handle the brush
  • Master the four basic brush strokes
  • Become familiar with the symbolism and philosophy behind each brush stroke

During this 2-week course, you will complete a beautiful teapot painting using Sumi ink and rice paper. Class fee includes all materials needed to create the project.

Experience the joy of learning this beautiful art form using a brush (fude), ink (sumi), and thin absorbent "rice-paper" (washi). Class size limited.
