Sumi e is Japanese for Ink on Paper. Based on very old Japanese and Chinese painting from quotes, in this workshop, I help visual artists and artistic souls get out of their heads, their linear way of thinking, and into their hearts, from where new ways of being can emerge. To stop or interrupt your usual way of being can open you up to who you really are. We are so much more than what we already know. This is very liberating. It’s really the ultimate freedom. We begin with a bit of dharma or talk/inquiry about meditation, some simple, guided meditation practice, then I teach you basic sumi e or calligraphic brushstrokes using sumi brushes. We finish by painting several abstract sumi e based on quotes from both ancient Asian poems and contemporary verse or music. Brushes, ink, and paper will be provided. We will break for traditional tea and share our results.
