Classes at the School are given in seminars of 3, 5 or 9 days throughout the year, in various locations.

The 3 or 5 day seminars given at Versailles address the theory of sumi-e.
The 5 or 9 day seminars outside Versailles are exclusively focused on practice.
The 3-day seminars at Versailles offer meditation on request.

Practice is based on repeating models, in a gradation designed to fit into the school duration, i.-e. on 4 years. For more information about the painting method itself, you may visit What is sumi-e by Beppe Mokuza.
