Nihonga is Japanese painting based on traditional artistic styles, techniques, and materials and embodies the Japanese aesthetic. Sato Sakura Gallery is hosting an introductory Nihonga workshop to teach participants about the history and significance that Nihonga paintings possess. This hands-on event will familiarize students with materials used within Nihonga art, such as mineral pigments, Japanese papers, gelatin, and more. Students will discover how to combine these materials to create their very own Nihonga piece to take home.
New York-based Nihonga artists Takashi Harada and Kae Sato will lead this workshop.
This workshop is suitable for participants aged 12 and older, and the fee includes the cost of materials. Space is limited to ten students per class, and registration in advance is required. To register, please visit Sato Sakura Gallery’s Eventbrite page.
