Would you like to learn to capture the essence of a bird or an animal (or a dragon!) with a few simple brush strokes? In this class you will learn some of the basics of sumi-e (Asian brush painting) and create charming simple images that will delight you. Lessons will be based on the instructor’s 2018 book, Super Simple Sumi-e. Suitable for ages 7 and up – come with your favorite kid!
Yvonne Palka has been an award winning sumi-e artist for the past 14 years and has written and illustrated 2 children’s books with sumi-e, Dragon Fire, Ocean Mist (2009) and Super Simple Sumi-e (2012). Her love of sumi-e comes from the simple elegance with which this medium captures the spirit of nature. Inspired by this simplicity she teaches children and adults the essence of sumi painting in schools and other community settings in the Twin Cities and in the Seattle area.
