Fun Sumie Ink Painting Lesson in Tokyo with English Speaking Instructor

Great experience

Reviewed by: Gray, 2018/05/15

I really learned something about how to handle the brush for sumi painting. The teacher was terrific to work with, very positive and engaged. I would like to take the next lesson. Wonderful view of the world through painting.

Fun with Yuta!

Sumi-e is much more than a painting activity, it's a glimpse into another world...another way of seeing... This 2 hour-ish experience only scratches the surface, so if you don't have 2-3 years to explore Sumi-e it is probably a great alternative! Yuta was a fun, encouragingly positive instructor with a good heart. The studio is an absolutely gorgeous workspace. You are surrounded by a master's work for inspiration.

  • Here there be dragons! (And cats...lots of cats!!)

  • Thanks, Yuta!!

  • The charming, light-filled studio is full of inspiring works.

Sumie Ink Painting

Reviewed by: McKenzie family, 2017/10/10

Yuta was an engaging and insightful teacher, who speaks English very well. Very good with our kids and with a great motto that there are no mistakes in Sumie art, just personal expression. Thank you for this fun activity and lessons. We have already bought brushes, ink, a cloth and paper to continue learning more.

I am not at all artistic, but even I was able to make pretty ink paintings! The teacher was really nice and funny, and the class was the perfect length. He showed me how to do landscapes, which was cool.
