“A Hint of Spring of Oregon” One-day Sumi Painting Workshop

Welcome the coming of Spring!

This workshop will concentrate energetic strokes and create paintings of early greens in Sumi style. We will use sumi ink to paint on Sprinkle Gold paper, to interpret flowers in Sumi style. The fusion of western and Eastern techniques is encouraged. Photos of local blooming and live flowers, branches are welcome. Please for repeating students, bring your sketch screen books and we will transfer sketch to paintings.

This workshop welcomes beginning and professional artists. We will work a lot on individual base. Painters new to sumi-e, and those experienced in East Asian watercolor painting will be introduced and encouraged to look at the “World” in a different artistic perspective. There will be demos, exercises, and one-on-one attention.

Philosophy and brief history of Chinese and Asian art and usage of Chops will be discussed in the workshop.

Bring a bag lunch. Pre-registration required, seating is limited. Call 541-773-1444 or come in to Central Art to reserve your spot.
