Sumi-E: Japanese Ink Painting with Aki Kato

• part

In this program, students will learn about the art of Japanese ink painting, known as sumi-e: “sumi” meaning “ink” and “e” meaning “picture.” Thousands of artists from all over Asia practice this ancient art. Aki Kato demonstrates how to make a painting of bamboo and a landscape scene of pine trees using black ink on thin rice paper, with rounded bamboo brushes.  Students can follow along using their own easily accessible materials as they learn to use double-loading, dry brush and blur techniques. This program was produced by the Arts Center of Coastal Carolina and was funded in part by the South Carolina Arts Commission which receives support from the National Endowment for the Arts.
