Register The art of painting with the Oriental Brush is a tradition that has existed for more than one thousand years. Learn and appreciate the “Way of the Brush” using contemporary techniques for Western students, and based upon the Breathing Brush Method, first developed in Ottawa by my Sumi-e artist and teacher, Mme Tomoko Kodama.  This course is open to all levels of experience, as teaching is geared towards beginner and advanced alike. For beginners, this program will give you the important fundamentals to produce simple, classic ink works in calligraphy and beginner-level object painting. Intermediate to advanced students will be given new ways to develop their painting techniques further. Each student can expect one-on-one assistance to advance along their painting journey.

Please request a material list from the Ottawa School of Art and arrive with all of your material for the first session.
