Learn about the history and philosophy of the art of Sumi-e, and try your hand at painting classic subjects, such as bamboo and enso.  We provide all art supplies and materials, you bring a sack lunch and wear work clothes or an apron.  Participants who have sumi-e art tools are welcome to bring them.

The class will be held indoors at the Zen Center, and Covid protocols (masking, distancing) will be observed.

Participants must be vaccinated.

Jeri Jo Carstairs has been creating sumi-e paintings for 10 plus years, studying with her teacher in Tacoma. She has expressed her teaching philosophy as “when I enjoy doing something, I like to share it with others.” PSZC members may remember receiving sangha care cards displaying Jeri Jo’s lovely work.
