Fun with Sumi-e Painting
with Keiko Romerstein


March 31 – April 1, 2015 | 10:00am – 3:00pm

All Levels


Students will learn how to paint  “Secondary Subjects” in Sumi-e painting. These secondary subjects are rarely the main focus in a painting but they give heartwarming attention to viewers and are fun to paint. The  workshop is a perfect way to learn the basics
of Sumi-e painting – a fun medium to explore. Keiko uses Sumi-ink (Black ink) to explain each drawing stroke by stroke.
