Sumi-e Dojos with Southwest Sumi Sensai William Preston

Spend a morning or afternoon experiencing the techniques, materials, and aesthetics of the art of sumi-e with sumi master William Preston at his Pojoaque studio and home, twenty minutes north of Santa Fe. No previous experience is required; all needed materials are provided. Learn the techniques that make sumi-e so appealing or explore Oriental brushwork to push your traditional watercolor paintings beyond the ordinary. Hands-on painting and practice with sensai William Preston will expand your artistic horizons. Be surprised by what you will learn and accomplish!

Classes include:

  • OVERVIEW of Sumi-e
  • MATERIALS and SOURCES of paper, ink, brushes, etc.
  • BASIC BRUSHWORK and EXERCISES
  • PUTTING STROKES TOGETHER to build a sumi-e vocabulary
  • STROKES used in LING-NAN style painting (charts)
  • DEMONSTRATION
  • DISCUSSION of MOUNTING TECHNIQUES
  • Q & A

Classes are by appointment, and gift certificates are available. Call the artist to discuss your needs and desires. An encounter with a master of the art of sumi-e and the southwest landscape is a not-to-be-missed, authentic experience during your stay in Santa Fe. Classes are limited to two students. Many students have said it was the high-point of their visit.

William is an experienced teacher who draws on 60 years as a landscape painter in watercolor, then oil, and now sumi-e to his classes, with 30 years of that painting the New Mexico landscape. His biography and more images may be found on his website.
