Workshops & Meetings
Friends of Taka Sumi-e society workshop meetings are held the first Saturday of every month, September through May, in Room 104, Casa del Prado, Balboa Park, 9:00 am to 11:30 am. A brief FOT membership meeting follows the workshop, from 11:30 am to Noon. Please bring your own tea mug. Hot water and tea are provided. A potluck is voluntary. (Alternative locations to Room 104 will be announced.)
Kinue Kai Silk Painting Group
Friends of Taka Sumi-e silk painters meet monthly at 10:30 am at Leucadia Pizza, 7748 Regents Road, La Jolla 92122. The group’s new name, Kinue Kai, simply means Silk Painting Group. Kinu is silk; e is painting; Kai is meeting group. (Of course mashi painters are incognito within the group. And we love this special touch).
Tuesday Painters is a group of FOT members and sumi-e students who meet to paint outdoors, or plein air painting. The informal group meets the 1st, 3rd, 4th and any 5th Tuesdays of each month from 9:00 am until Noon. If you'd like to join in with the Tuesday Painters, contact Gaye Lingley . Any suggestions as to places to paint are appreciated. This is a great way to expand artistic horizons and sumi-e really lends itself to the out-of-doors.
