Workshops help participants develop their skills and learn new techniques in an informal class setting taught by a well-known artist. There are opportunities to interact with the artist and study the artist's technique up close. Workshops are open to members of the Sumi-e Artists of Canada, students taking classes, and any interested sumi-e artist.
