Sumi-e: Bamboo & Insects
Sumi-e is a Japanese pictorial technique made of black ink. It is characterized by representing nature in both an expressive and simple way. It has a strong connection with Zen practices and is therefore considered a meditative and relaxing activity.
In this workshop we will learn about the Four Honorable Knights, the study motifs par excellence of Sumi-e, and the main strokes to create our own paintings. We will work and deepen the bamboo motif.
It's an opportunity to spend time, to learn at your own pace, to become aware and to let the brush convey the inner state of each other.
