Explore nihonga Japanese-style painting with local artist Hiromi Katayama! Building on traditional techniques, the term nihonga (日本画) was coined in the Meiji period (1868–1912) as a conscious effort to preserve and promote Japanese artistic forms in reaction to Western-style painting, or yōga (洋画). Ms. Katayama will introduce the special water-based pigments and painting techniques to demonstrate different varieties of this art form. Attendees will also have the opportunity to try sumi-e in a hands-on workshop. Sumi-e is ink painting on thin rice paper using sumi ink and bamboo brushes with expressive brush strokes.
