Orchid Modern Sumi-e (Chinese Brush Painting) Class

This "Live" online class will meet on Tuesday, September 28, 2021 at 6pm EST (3pm PST, 12noon HST) using Zoom (https://zoom.us/). This is a LIVE class, so I will be available during the entire session to answer "your" questions as I demonstrate the painting step-by-step. If you can't make the live class, it will be recorded and posted on Youtube with a private link (only those that have the link can see the video) so you can re-watch the video as many times as you want.

***Please provide me with your email address and phone number in the "comments" section when you purchase this class. Please read through all of the directions.

You don't have to sign up with Zoom to be a participant. Attached is a PDF with your login info and info about supplies. You will be able to log into Zoom 15 minutes before the class to check your video and microphone connections using the meeting id and password I provide you. Log in at (https://zoom.us/join)

Because you need to see detail while I am painting, you will need to use a laptop or ipad. The image won't be large enough using your phone.

You can paint along with me or you can just join in and watch. I will record the class and post it on Youtube with a private link (only those that have the link can see the video) so you can re-watch the video as many times as you want.

Here are the steps you need to take this class:

1 - After purchasing the class, download the attached PDF as it has your Zoom login instructions and also your complete supply list and advice.

2 - If you're going to be painting along with me, please have your art supplies ready.
Here is a "suggested" list. Please try to get as close to this list as possible for best results.
(Or just use whatever supplies you already have. Let me now if you have any questions.)

About Modern Sumi-e Painting: I teach a modern version of the ancient Chinese Brush Painting technique which means we will be using modern materials to produce similar results. When I first started exploring this style of painting, I found that it really loosened me up for my watercolor painting. I learned how to manipulate the brush to let the brush strokes work for me effortlessly (after practice, of course). I also learned how to load the brush with several colors for some exciting and easy effects. Plus, the emphasis on this style of painting is simplicity. I can now create a visually pleasing painting in only a few minutes time with a few amazing brushstrokes. During the class we will be learning and practicing a set of brush strokes, and then we will put them together to create a final painting. If time permits I will teach you some other simple and fun designs. It is a relaxing and meditative painting process. I call it the "yoga" of painting!

I am excited to be your "virtual" art teacher!!!
