Meditations in Ink: Bamboo & Dragonfly
Asian Brush Painting with Bruce Iverson

Saturday, November 10th, 10am to 4pm

Against a backdrop of meditative music, this day-long workshop is your doorway to the exciting yet contemplative world of Asian art!

This workshop is for those interested in learning the traditional tools & techniques of Asian Brush Painting ("sumi-e" in Japan). Through step-by-step demonstrations and hands-on brush painting projects, you will explore this ancient and elegant art form. Using the "Four Treasures" (bamboo brushes, handground ink, inkstone, and rice paper) we will work on methods for painting several versions of Bamboo. Additionally we will learn how to create a delightful "guest" for our Bamboo "host"...a high-flying and inquisitive dragonfly.

No previous experience needed. All materials are included in the cost of the workshop. We will take a break for lunch. A minimum of 7 students is needed to run this class. Ages 15+.
