Wednesday, July 21 – Friday, July 23, 2021
11:00 AM – 3:00 PM
Join us to celebrate the 2021 Tokyo Olympics by learning Sumi-e, the art of Japanese ink painting. Using a minimum of strokes you will create lively and spontaneous paintings of trees, mountains, birds and flowers. We will honor Japan, the host country of the Olympics by painting the chrysanthemum, the royal flower of Japan.
Zen Buddhist monks introduced the Northern Sung style of painting to Japan during the 14th century. During the 15th century, they brought the newer Southern style which represents Sumi-e as we know it today.
Supplies are included. Bring a packed lunch, as we will have a short lunch break.

The class is being taught by Sue Wilders, recently retired after 17 years as artist in residence of the Morikami Japanese Museum in Delray Beach Florida

Books are fun to read, but they are also a great place to write or draw! Let Mrs. Allison guide your kids through the process of making their very own notebooks (with a little bit of help from you) using creative folding, fun embellishments and craft supplies easily found around the house. Then sit back and watch as they fill the pages with all the amazing ideas whizzing around their heads!
Helpful items: paper lunch bags, origami paper or paper cut into squares at least 4×4 inches, recipe cards, glue stick, black pen, blank piece of sketchpad paper or construction paper...optional: feathers or stickers to decorate your covers, piece of ribbon 10-12 inches long.
