Come and learn how to paint some iconic Minnesota animals using simple Sumi-e (Asian brush painting) techniques. Learn to paint a variety of charming images, including moose, porcupines, herons, raccoons, foxes, owls, skunks and other animals using techniques explained in the instructor’s book, Super Simple Sumi-e. Participants can also create a larger woodland landscape scene with all the animals present if time permits.
