Receiving a seal is just the beginning of a lifetime of learning in the art of sumi-e painting. Many artists continue their studies by becoming members of the Sumi-e Artists of Canada, including artists from other schools. Students taking classes can also become members. The members form an invaluable source of sumi-e knowledge and contacts. Several members are instructors and well-known artists in the Toronto community.
Photos from workshops and shows demonstrates what it is like to be a member and participate in workshops and shows.
Members are entitled to a reduced rate for workshops, where they can continue to develop their skills. The next workshop is listed in the events section. Frequently they are contributors to the annual show of sumi-e paintings. All members of the executive are members.
Members can also post up to three paintings and cards in the Sumi-e Paintings and Cards section.
Cost: $40.00 per year. First year is free to those who just received their seal.
