To complement the exhibition Hiroshige’s Japan, join Japanese watercolour artist Takumasa Ono for a special one-day workshop introducing Sumi-e, the ancient art of Japanese brush painting. The Japanese experience painting as a form of meditation that brings peace and harmony to the artist. These paintings traditionally feature subjects from the natural world such as flowers and birds, and are intended to also inspire a sense of tranquillity and joy in the viewer.
This practical course will introduce techniques to create striking paintings and discover the spiritual aspects of this unique art form. All materials are included in the price of the ticket.
