Event Details

Learn some traditional and contemporary Japanese painting techniques with Bamboo brushes, Sumi Ink and Gold leaf.

Learn from an experienced local artist, who’ll teach you how to paint using traditional materials like bamboo brushes, sumi ink, Gansai Tambi 顔彩耽美 (Traditional Japanese colours), gold leaves on rice paper.

Paint Japanese scenes with us! We will bring along a selection of seasonal references from the different Japanese art movements like Ukiyo-e, Rinpa School and also some Japanese contemporary artists. Depending on your confidence level you can choose to design your own work using the references for inspiration or you if you’re feeling less confident you can copy a reference directly.

This painting class is suitable for beginners as well as those with a little more artistic experience, so don’t worry if it’s your first time. Your teacher will be on hand to provide guidance and answer any questions.

At the end of your art class, you’ll get the chance to stand back and admire your beautiful Japanese painting or you can share your experiences with the group. You’ll head home with your completed piece and a new skill that’s perfect to practice whenever you’re looking to clear your head.
