Sonoma County Matsuri Festival Presents Brush with Japan 2013 - Breakaway Sumi-e with Michael Hofmann
Seishin Studio
Santa Rosa, CA
Share this event:

In this workshop we will explore sumi-e, traditional Japanese brush painting using ground ink.  After learning a little about the ink and brushes, there will be a variety of themes for individual exploration.  Employing a playful approach, we'll discover the joy of expressive and spontaneous brushwork.  For all levels of experience.

About the instructor:  Michael Hofmann - After growing up in the San Francisco Bay Area, Michael spent most of his life in Kyoto as a painter and disciple to the sumi-e painter and Zen priest Jikihara Gyokusei.  Michael has had exhibitions of his work in galleries and museums throughout Japan.  Since returning to the US in 2011, he has given sumi-e classes at the San Francisco Asian Art Museum and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.
