Sumi-e is the ancient art of Japanese brush painting. Traditionally, paintings feature subjects from nature, such as flowers and birds. There is much more to creating an image during the process of Japanese ink painting; it is also meditative practise. The experience of Sumi-e brings a sense of peace and harmony to the artist, and finished artworks are created to arouse the same sense of joy and tranquillity in the viewer. During this practical course, students will: Grind their own ink using stone Mix different shades of ink Learn how to hold the brush Explore painting with an empty mind Experiment creating different brushstrokes Create traditional images Junko is an award-winning artist. She has exhibited widely in Japan and Australia, and her work, Bamboo Grove and the dragonfly, is in the permanent collection at the National Gallery of Victoria. All materials are provided, and the workshop is limited to ten students to ensure one-on-one tuition.
