Suibokuga or Sumi-e painting has its origins in ancient China, but has been practiced in Japan since the eighth
century. By the fourteenth century it had been adopted as one of the Zen arts.
Using only black ink and infinite shades of grey, the artwork aims to capture the essence of its subject in
simple expressionistic forms.
The classes focus on, but are not limited to, bamboo painting and are be taught by Yumiko Kigoshi.
Yumiko is a member of the Kokusai Bokugakai and has been studying suibokuga for over ten years, as well as being an
accomplished practicitoner of shodo with eighteen years of experience.
