Celebrate the Olympics and Japanese Art

Description

Course schedule subject to change for in-person offerings.

Celebrate the Olympics! 

From the 15th century to the 21st century Japanese art has maintained it's popularity. The Zen Buddhist monks first introduced the Northern Sung style of painting to Japan in the 14th century. During the Shogunate era  in the 15th century arts, of all kinds flourished.

You will learn the basic strokes of traditional Japanese Sumi-e (ink painting). Learn  bamboo strokes and you will be painting  Bonsai trees  (any tree for that matter), flowers, birds, butterflies, landscape and more. We will honor Japan, the host country of the Olympics, by painting the chrysanthemum which is the Royal flower.

Course Format

This class will meet in person in Edwin Duncan Hall room 315.
