What is special? / Sumie Workshop

There is no mistake in sumie painting, especially in the sumie class. Sumie can make you free from all including sadness and bad mood and so on. Adults and children can enjoy painting together at the same moment. It also makes you go over the all walls of generations, nations, genders, and more. Sumie is easy and simple and interesting, so we can do it easily. In this point, it could be called Momentary Painting. That’s because children can paint 10-20 paintings in an hour and they can keep their concentrations in the entire class without any boring. That’s amazing things. Please check out about Children in usual. You can find the sumie class great. Anyway, Sumie is so fun and easy, and simple.
That makes you have fun. That makes you glad and happy. That makes you smile naturally. Why not do it?
Let’s have some fun with sumi-e painting!

Yuta Honda / Instructor

Sumie Instructor / The director of the Toyokuni Atelier gallery / A son of Sumie master Toyokuni Honda

I started a sumie class Experience for the visitors to Japan on April 2015. I have participated in a lot of sumie classes of the Master Toyokuni Honda as a director or a facilitator since 2009. I made a class change into not only lesson but also entertaining one. I made it simpler and easier than father’s class. That’s why particularly the beginners of painters and tourists love this class. Not only adults but also children can have so much fun with sumie painting easily. Enjoying first, anyway paint something. I want to remove all of sadness away from the world.
