Melbourne Art Class welcomes award-winning sumi-e (Japanese Ink) artist, Junko Azukawa to host a three-hour Japanese ink advanced painting workshop.

Sumi-e is the ancient art of Japanese brush painting. Traditionally, paintings feature subjects from nature, such as flowers and birds.

There is much more to creating an image during the process of Japanese ink painting; it is also meditative practice.

The experience of Sumi-e brings a sense of peace and harmony to the artist, and finished artworks are created to arouse the same sense of joy and tranquillity in the viewer.

Junko will bring many models for the student to choose from and each student will work on one or two subjects individually.

Junko is an award-winning artist. She has exhibited widely in Japan and Australia, and her work, Bamboo Grove and the dragonfly, is in the permanent collection at the National Gallery of Victoria.

All materials are provided, and workshop places are limited to ensure one-on-one tuition.
