For our last project of the year, the Wednesday night teen class created Sumi-e Ink Paintings.

Sumi-e is a Japanese word that literally means “Ink Picture.” “Sumi” is the ink.   Adding “e” makes it “ink picture.” The art of Sumi-e originated in China about 6000 years ago as Calligraphy. Calligraphy led to painting pictures.   

We added some wax resist into our project to make it more interesting.

The students really enjoyed this project.  Here is peak at some of their work:
