Draw creative inspiration from the Frist Center’s exhibition Looking East: Western Artists and the Allure of Japan and learn about the culture that inspired the exhibition’s masterworks. Following a tour of the exhibition, participants will enjoy a plein air workshop at Cheekwood’s Japanese Garden, Shomu-En. Frist Center Associate Educator for Community Engagement Rosemary Brunton will teach the basics of sumi-e, traditional Japanese ink wash painting, and combine them with the watercolor techniques of plein air landscapes to build unique creations of your very own. All levels of artistry welcome.
