Tired of paying to have your watercolors matted, framed and put under "glass"? This demonstration will show you how you can avoid that cost and/or the frustration by mounting and protecting your watercolor, giving you a beautiful presentation for your work. As this is a process with time for drying, there will be no hands on work, but only demonstration. You will leave with written instructions and a supply list so you can try it at home.

Kuehn, Noriko

Learn the simple and serene world of painting Sumi-e (painting with ink) combined with Japanese Gansai watercolors. Gansai is traditional Japanese watercolor. Gansai Tambi (Gansai meaning "vibrance" and Tambi meaning "aesthetic") are artist quality Japanese paints that are described as watercolors, but have a very different feel and effect from western watercolors.
This class is for anyone and covers the basic skills of Japanese brush painting for beginners, as well as more advanced techniques for experienced learners. The class focuses on Japanese Gansai Tambi watercolors & Sumi-e to paint images, such as Bamboo, flowers, fish and Japanese landscape from beautiful photos. Learn the historical and cultural background of Gansai & Sumi-e. The lecture will be minimal with focus on plenty of hands-on studio time.
A $35 materials fee is paid directly to the instructor to cover cost of sumi ink, a Gansai Tambi watercolor set and use of Japanese brushes for the session. Instructor will provide a variety of Japanese papers to try in the first class.
