Wednesday, December 21, 5:00pm - 6:30pm PST

This session is all about brush strokes and exploring with Sumi Ink. Focusing on simplicity and negative space, we will create abstract compositions inspired by nature and intuition through repetition, pattern and layering. There will be lots of freedom and expression revealed by using one color and using big painting strokes. We will go through a lot of paper, small and large, so bring many options to explore and keep it affordable.

Join zoom 15 minutes early (4:45pm) for an informal meet and greet with the instructor and other class participants! Session instructions will begin promptly at 5:05pm PST so that everyone has plenty of time to join!
