Discover Zen Painting
Learn how to create a Zen painting of Daruma, the first Zen patriarch, using traditional Japanese brushes, ink, and paper. This hour-long workshop will be taught by artist Michael Hofmann, who has spent most of the last thirty-five years as a painter based in Kyoto, Japan, where his studies were guided by the master sumi-e painter and Zen priest Jikihara Gyokusei. This program is held in conjunction with the exhibition The Sound of One Hand: Paintings and Calligraphy by Zen Master Hakuin.
Pavilion for Japanese Art | Free, tickets required and available the day of the event. Space is limited.
