 A Hands-On-Exploration of  

Three Japanese Art Forms

John C. Campbell Folk School
Brasstown, NC

Oct. 21 to Oct. 26, 2018

Immerse yourself in beauty and nature through three Japanese disciplines: Sumi-e ink painting, Haiku poetry, and Ikebana flower arranging. Master the traditional brush strokes of sumi-e to create compositions that express the emotion of your subjects. Then use sumi-e to illustrate your haiku—lyrical poetry of 17 syllables in three lines. As you experience Ikebana flower arranging, natural materials become your medium. Enjoy the opportunity to integrate these Oriental influences into contemporary arts and crafts.

No prior experience needed.
