●●●Ranui's Sumi-E(Chinese Ink Painting) & Japanese Calligraphy Art Class Information●●●
●●●Ransui’s Sumi-e and Calligraphy Classes:
Hello, everyone. How are you? Welcome to Ransui sumi-E and Japanese Calligraphy class!!. I am  Japanese calligrapher and sumi-e (ink painting) painter and teacher whose professional artist name is “Ransui.” I have been introducing the true beauty of Sumi-e and Japanese calligraphic art through my classes in Tokyo for a very long time. Having lived in London, it is my pleasure to offer classes in English. With enthusiasm, it is my mission to share the spirit of Sumi-e and calligraphy.
Lectures and teaching include full instructions in how to create a work of art beginning with basic strokes, how to hold the brush, what materials to use, and the history of these Japanese arts, among many other topics.
I do hope that many foreigners who are interested in Sumi-e or Shodo (Japanese Calligraphy:The Way of the Brush) will be able to
spend enjoyable hours learning and experiencing the Ink Arts and making your own original Sumi-e and Calligraphy. It is my hope that through this process, you will be able to better understand and appreciate Japanese culture and the way of Asian art.
Thank you so very much.
