The Blowing Rock Plein Air Festival is a four-day plein air painting event. It takes place in the beautiful mountainous area surrounding the town of Blowing Rock in western North Carolina. Its aim is to bring painters together from around the world to paint outside in the fresh air while getting to know each other and sharing their work. The event prompts applicants to explore the unique Blowing Rock architecture, spectacular Blue Ridge Mountain views, and overall Appalachian feel of one of the most scenic areas in the country.
After four days of painting "en plein air," painters are invited to display their completed works at the "Wet Paint" Art Show & Sale on Saturday afternoon, August 21st.

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.
ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR:
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
PLEASE NOTE: Limited seating available. An 80% refund will be issued if the participant cancels three weeks prior to the event. For cancellations made less than three weeks prior to the event, BRAHM will issue a refund IF the museum is able to fill the vacated spot.
This workshop has limited tickets to ensure social distancing. Everyone will have their own table to work at, with plenty of space in between. People who share the same house may work at the same table. Masks are required.
