15.07.2018 Art-Trip. Japanese art meditation at NAMU
We have already been with you in Italy and France, so we have prepared a new art journey. This Sunday we decided to visit Japan.
Peace, concentration on details, search for inner harmony - we will practice all these things with the technique of sumi-e, a kind of painting that most fully transmits the sense of the atmosphere of East Asia.
Monochrome painting with ink reminds at the same time of Japanese calligraphy and of watercolor work, but besides the external attractiveness, the sumi-e has a profound spiritual meaning. This is the path of exploring your inner self through the outside world. We can say that sumi-e is an art therapy, and the creation of a picture is a certain process of meditation. Flora and fauna are characteristic patterns of the sumi-e, because of the Japanese cult of nature and a special passion for landscapes.
First, we will try together with Kristina Petrivska to use the sumi-e technique on a small draft with one sample, and then move on to a larger paper size, where everyone will choose their own image. The work will be done using ink and water on watercolor paper.
Join our meditative Japanese trip this Sunday!
The event is suitable for both adults and children.
