Sumi Ink Drawing and Beyond
Artists engage with the past while immersing themselves in the present in a workshop that focuses on the practice of drawing using sumi ink and brush on paper. We take a contemporary and experimental approach to sumi ink drawing while referencing traditional Asian brush painting and calligraphy. We consider brush marks and lines to be descriptive, meditative, intuitive, experimental, and expressive while also examining varied modes of presentations, such as collages and simple folding and bookmaking. Participants are encouraged to come with an open mind and experimental spirit; the only expectation is to be present within the process.
