Japanese Ink Painting Workshop (suiboku-ga)

Join Talia at her studio and learn Japanese calligraphy (shodo) and Ink painting (suibokuga) in a relaxed and professional atmosphere. Talia has many years experience as an artist and teacher with rich knowledge of Asian art and ink painting.

The study of Asian ink painting is a practice of being with the heart’s rhythm. Exercising discipline and steadiness of heart and mind to develop a creative process over a substantial period of time. This is an active meditation process in encouraging new ways of observation and self listening as part of healing and inspiration.

The appeal of Japanese ink painting is in the flow of the brush. The seemingly 'effortless' minimalistic stroke that suggest a bamboo in the wind or a flying sparrow is magical. It is an art form of economy, using one brush and one colour to reflect upon nature's harmonies. Results can be achieved on first experience, but mastership flawless of the brush, require practice.

Workshops include practice of Japanese characters (kanji) and traditional painting themes such as Plum Blossom, Wild Orchid and Bamboo. Advanced students study a variety of themes to include flowers and birds, animals and landscape painting. Each workshop includes live demonstration, various exercises, work sheets and plenty of practice time.

at Belsize Studio Gallery, NW3, London.
