NIHONGA: THEN and NOW  

4 Day Basic Nihonga Workshop with JUDITH KRUGER

OCTOBER 3-6, 2013
Wisdom House Retreat and Conference Center, Litchfield, CT (during the peak of New England’s Fall foliage)

This workshop is a unique, introductory Nihonga (traditional Japanese mineral pigment painting) class. We will make grounds and pigment from organic and inorganic matter like cured shells, precious minerals, exotic soils, pine soot, indigo and silica. Metallic leafing and layering techniques will be covered. Emphasis will be on the creation of contemporary, matter-driven abstract painting, rooted in ancient processes. The attributes of the surrounding environment will be integrated for meditation and inspiration. Western and Eastern aesthetics  will be cross-referenced for creative exploration.

Registration ends September 1, 2013
