Course Description

Michelle Wasabi introduces her first installment of Japanese Black Ink Painting referred to in Japanese as SUMIE (pronounced: sue-me-ay) This lesson provides detailed instruction on how to paint a sumie bamboo.

Michelle will take you on a journey through all the sumie materials needed, a brief meditation/mindfulness exercise, and all the components to create a bamboo masterpiece. This is a beginner’s lesson plan for anyone who has never painted before.

Quick History Point: Sumi-e originated in China in the 8th century. It was later introduced by Buddhist monks to countries like Japan, Korea, and Malaysia.

Michelle landed herself in both sumie and nihon buyou (classical Japanese dance) classes while living in Japan for two years. She loves the natural and endearing aesthetic of the brushstrokes and the minimalism of the final product.
