Sumi-e and Chinese Brush Painting II
with Roycroft Campus Artist, Janet Nye Vedder
Saturday, March 18th from 10:00am – 2:00pm
The Roycroft Campus – 21 South Grove St. East Aurora, NY
Join us on an artistic journey through art and culture. Chinese brush painting is a beautiful and unique style of artwork. Using only three simple tools, ink, brush, and paper, students will learn to create captivating artworks using the beauty and freedom of the Sumi-e brush line.
A continuation of Sumi-e and Chinese Brush Painting I, this class will build our Sumi-e brush stroke vocabulary, skills, and techniques. Students will begin transforming these brush strokes into graceful forms of nature referred to as ‘The Four Gentlemen’, which are the four plants (Plum, Orchid, Bamboo and Chrysanthemum) that represent valued virtues and themes in Chinese and Asian cultures. It is recommended that students take Sumi-e Painting I prior to this class, but it is not required.
Janet Nye Vedder has experience as a graphic artist, product illustrator, and art educator. With a Masters in Education and twenty-two years of experience teaching art, she looks forward to teaching a variety of art classes on the Roycroft Campus.
