Sumi-e, also called Suibokuga, 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.

In this class at RESOBOX, a Japanese cultural center in New York, all students will start from the basics of ink-wash painting, such as how to hold a brush.

This was a wonderful experience. The instructor was not only well skilled in presenting the basic Sumi-e painting techniques, but also skilled in providing the cultural and philosophical background for this type of artwork. She also presented pictures of Sumi-e paintings from the great masters of the past. I am happy that I took this course.
