NIHONGA: THEN AND NOW
November 11 - 16, 2018
Medium: Mineral Pigment Paint, ink, mixed media
Level: All Levels
Lab Fee: $185 (includes most supplies and equipment)
This workshop is a basic Nihonga (traditional Japanese mineral pigment painting) class with the addition of instructor’s ecological paint applications. Students will make water-based paint and grounds from organic and inorganic matter like cured shells, minerals, soils, pine soot (sumi), indigo, insect secretions and silica with natural glue and plant binders. Traditional and new ecological Japanese pigments in varied colors and particle sizes will also be explored through a traditional layering system on Kumohadamashi (especially strong washi paper made from hemp and mulberry) and wood panels. Metallic leafing and oxidation techniques will be covered as well as traditional Japanese paper sizing and mounting.
Emphasis will be on the creation of purposeful, multi-layered paintings stemming from non-toxic, ancient practices that embody the power to nurture the spirit. The works of traditional and contemporary Nihonga painters will be introduced through powerpoint presentations.
Each participant will receive a one-on-one session with the instructor as well as a final group critique. Traditional and abstract painters welcome. Artists using any medium: potters, oil painters, printmakers, photographers, textile artists can all benefit from this workshop. All levels. Traditional and Abstract Painters Welcome.
