Interested in studying sumi-e painting? Angie Dixons’ top recommended book for beginning is The Sumi-e Book by Yolanda Mayhall. The information in The Sumi-e Book is very good and accessible, and books and youtube are great for learning sumi-e but, Dixon says, students really need to have the pressure of a teacher. Today’s Beginning Sumi-e workshop with Angie Dixon sold out. She will be teaching another workshop here soon. If you are interested in studying ink and don’t want to miss the next workshop, send us a note. We’ll send you a special invitation as soon as it’s posted.
