Art on Penn: A Closer View
Create your own bamboo scroll while learning about Japanese Ink Painting
Sumi-e is the ancient art of Japanese ink painting. Sumi-e captures, in a pure and simple way, the timeless beauty of the natural world. Margaret and J.J. Brown traveled to Japan several times and brought back artifacts, some of which are still in the house today. We will be taking a closer look at the Sumi-e art form and virtually travel with Margaret to view the art of Japan through her eyes. We will also create our own beautiful bamboo scroll paintings. We will be joined by staff from the Denver Art Museum in conjunction with the exhibit: Her Brush: Japanese Women Artists from the Fong-Johnstone Collection.
This program will be hosted on a virtual platform. Supplies list for the art making portion will be shared prior to the event.
