2022 is the year of the tiger. Like the tiger, 2022 has already been filled with wild emotions. Baoxing Zhang will guide you on painting the ferocious tiger. You are no doubt familiar with Baoxing's engaging workshops on animals like his Year of the Pig workshop.

When: Saturday, June 11th. 9:30 am to noon.
Where: Japanese Canadian Cultural Centre (JCCC)
More information: We have free rice paper donated by members.
Pick up your 2022 sumi-e exhibition invitations.
Bring a cup! We have styrofoam cups for tea but ecology-minded members suggest a cup is better.

Cost: $20 for members. $30 for guests. Cash, debit, credit or cheque.

Looking Back to May: We learned how to paint the waterfall with Richard Tang in a Waterfalls workshop.

A reminder to members: In case you have not renewed, renew! The list of members notified for workshops will be updated in June. You want to remain on that list. You can pay online or at workshops with a debit or credit card.
