We Are Pleased to Announce a Workshop with Yuming Zhu
We are pleased to announce that we are hosting a workshop with Yuming Zhu, a well-known Sumi-e Master from Seattle. Welcome the coming of Summer with this one day workshop that will concentrate on energetic strokes and the creation of paintings in Sumi style. The fusion of Western and Eastern techniques will be explored along with expressive styles of roosters and Chinese characters. This is a wonderful opportunity to work with a ‘Master’ of Sumi techniques.
The workshop will be held at Poppet Creative, 1508 Haultain St, Victoria on June 4th from 9:30-3:30. Cost for the workshop is $125.00. There is a supply list (approx. $100.00). Space is limited - register before May 15th. The instructor has to make travel and accommodation arrangements so committment has to be made before May 15th and as such there will be absolutely no refunds after May 15th. Register at Island Blue (not Poppet Creative). For more details and registration, please contact staff here at Island Blue.
“I land my brush with the force of a giant rock splashing into the ocean. I am not looking for a beautiful painting, but to express Life itself. Painting is just like a stacking of passions. Painting is a method of striping myself naked and facing the truth of my inner emotion. I invite the viewer to experience through my paintings the joy of being alive right at this moment.” Yuming Zhu
