Friends of Taka Sumi-e silk painters meet monthly at 10:30 am at Leucadia Pizza, 7748 Regents Road, La Jolla 92122.  The group also meets once a month at 10:30 am at Wasabi Sushi, 2662 Garnet Ave in Pacific Beach.  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).

 

All levels of silk painters are welcome.  Please come and work on your current projects or start a new one.  We share our experience, ideas, supplies, resources and camaraderie (kind of like a silk painting support group!)  If you are just curious, come and observe.  If you have started a silk painting and forgot the process and need advice, or need to purchase pigments or silk (8 mm haboti), please come.

The photos below are from Takashi's workshop on Feb. 24. The workshop was well attended with a combination of beginning and intermediate students in silk painting. Takashi covered several techniques of painting, from ink to traditional nihonga to a modern style as well as the basics for preparing the silk for painting.
