Sumi-e Painting and Lettering with Carol Moates Part 3 of 3 Sessions @ Hirsch Center at Revolution Mill
Sep 20 @ 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm
Sumi-e Painting and Lettering with Carol Moates Part 3 of 3 Sessions @ Hirsch Center at Revolution Mill | Greensboro | North Carolina | United States

Sumi-e goes beyond the simple painting technique.   Sumi-e painting is a calming art form that invites your thoughts to fade away until only a white sheet of paper remains in your mind.  Using mindfulness and imagery, the subject to be painted appears in the mind and then is transferred through the use of the Sumi-e brush. This is an uncomplicated art form and allows the artist to create freely, unlike a landscape or still life.
