What you'll learn in this painting class:

Sumi-e, also called Suiboku-ga, is the art of ink wash-painting. Characteristically, it is an East Asian art, and has been practiced there for well over a thousand years.


Sumi-e depicts the spirit or essence of an object or scene rather than its outward appearance — and does so in the fewest possible strokes. Because of this simplicity, the painter’s character and personality come through in his/her work. In both viewing and creating, Sumi-e is a very contemplative form of painting.


Important things to note:

  • All students will start from the basics of ink-wash painting, such as how to hold a brush.
  • All materials such as ink, brushes, calligraphy paper, etc. will be provided for the students.

Japanese Ink Painting (Sumi-e)
Reviewed by Anonymous on 11/13/2019
I would like to have learned a little about the history of this type of art. We painted on newsprint. Is that what is really used? There was no instruction on traditional composition, what were the rules for this art?
