The International School of Sumi-e participates in the Cultural Day of Japan in Versailles, organized by the Momijigari association, on Sunday October 9, from 11 am to 6 pm, at the Maison de Quartier Porchefontaine in Versailles, 86 rue Yves le Coz.
Many other Japanese arts will also be demonstrated.
Free entrance. Possibility to have lunch on the spot in a bento.
The first seminar of the year 2022-2023 of the sumi-e teacher training takes place from Saturday 15 to Wednesday 19 October 2022, at Alain’s Workshop in Versailles. It is open to all, partial participation possible.
Classes continue remotely, by videoconference on the Zoom platform. Students closely see the teacher while he is painting, from several simultaneous points of view, in order to best reproduce the conditions of a physical lesson (teacher’s sheet of paper seen from above, his hand seen from the side and his face seen from the front) and the model currently explained is displayed in a permanent manner. Students can select the image that is most useful to them at any given time. The teacher supervises the students, who can present their work at any time for advice.
Opposite, an overview of Alain Plaignaud’s workshop transformed into a web studio.
Remote courses last shorter and are more frequent than physical seminars, one afternoon twice a week. Their list is on the Program page.
