Contemporary Sumi

  • Teacher: Angie Dixon
  • Class Length:  3 Weeks
  • Class Begins: Saturday, March 9
  • Time: 10:00-1:00 pm
  • Prerequisite – Beginning Sumi

This class is for those who have had some experience using Asian ink, also called “sumi” and rice paper. We will build on the sumi painting techniques, composition and ways of seeing and thinking. It will be traditional and exploratory and playful! Subject matter will be varied.

About the instructor

Angie Dixon studied art at the University of Washington where she received two degrees; one in fine arts and the other in art history in 1976. She continued with graduate studies in the People’s Republic of China at the Zhejiang Academy of Fine Arts in 1984.

Her training has been in the traditional use of Asian Brush and Ink Painting in its varied forms and she has pursued bringing it into contemporary art language in her own work along with practicing the tradition.

Materials Suggestions

Blue Heron as some Pi/Kozo packets that are relatively inexpensive and OAS has a “practice roll” that is also inexpensive and comparable to the “shuji-gami” roll.
Do NOT get regular watercolors or acrylics, only the Japanese or Chinese colors. These are water-based and permanent.
