About the event

PLEASE READ ENTIRE DESCRIPTION.  (This is a continuation of Intro to Sumi-e Ink Painting.  You cannot purchase tickets for this course unless you previously attended Introduction to Sumi-e Class that took place on June 15, 2024.  Must register online.)

Sumi-e Japanese Ink Painting 2 Week Course - Saturday, June 22 & Saturday, June 29th – 1 to 3 p.m.  $70 for the course. Includes class supplies and an art supply kit* to take home.

Class Syllabus

Class 2 – Saturday, June 22 – 1 to 3 p.m.

In this second class we will focus on creating animal life with simple brush and ink

techniques, drawing from what we have previously learned from class 1. The emphasis

will be on easy-to-create bird forms and koi fish. Once we have mastered the animal

forms, time permitting, we will also practice combining background effects and animals

together to create a balanced and pleasing composition.

*Take Home Supply Kit - Each participant will receive a take home art supply kit consisting of:

Brushes, ink, watercolor paint, and paper. Everything needed to create a colorful Sumi-e art piece at home.

A $50 value included in class price.

Class 3 – Saturday, June 29 – 1 to 3 p.m.

Bring back your Take Home Art Supply Kit for this class!

The final class will start with a demonstration of how to work with the Japanese tube

watercolors and we will talk about a balanced composition. Once the demonstration is

completed, we will then start to work on a large final piece of art that will combine all that

was learned during each class, including the use of watercolor. Depending on the speed at

which you work, some students may be able to complete two compositions by the end of

the class.

Course Fee: $70 per participant. Pre-registration is required by June 21 @ 3pm.

Class Size: Maximum 25 participants.   

Class Time: 1pm - 3pm.

Recommended for ages 10 & up.

What is Summer Connections?

Summer Connections is our spinoff mini program of our recent Creative Connections program. In 2023, White Rabbit Galleries was pleased to host a monthly series of art classes and instruction geared towards providing arts education to our community while also arranging a time for families, friends, and neighbors to spend time together in an engaging activity.  Each Creative Connections class covered a different medium of art and technique to maximize creativity and challenge. In order to continue offering classes of this nature, Summer Connections is a short program we will offer through the Summer months of 2024.  The classes will include intro classes or courses consisting of multiple classes learning the same subject. We will not provide refreshements for Summer Connections, but participants are welcome to provide their own drinks or snacks if needed.  Some classes will include take home supplies that will have no additional cost outside of the class fee. This program is made possible through funding provided by the Barberton Community Foundation.
