PW-02-19 Ikebana: Japanese Flower Arrangement with Ping Wei

 

IKEBANA: JAPANESE FLOWER ARRANGEMENT with Ping Wei 

During this workshop, offered by international Ikebana artist Ping Wei, students will learn the art of Japanese flower arranging, where the process is as important as the resulting arrangement.  In Ikebana, the learning does not come from merely memorizing the basics, but also from the process where students begin to attune to their inner selves, to the flowers and branches they are touching, to the surroundings that envelope them, and by extension to the world in which they exist.

During this relaxing workshop students will feel their creativity blossom. Class will begin with Ping providing a verbal history of the art of Ikebana. He will discuss that the art form takes root in the concept of simplicity, and that there is an emphasis on lines and the use of space. After a demonstration by Ping, students will make their own, original Ikebana arrangement. The workshop will conclude with a thoughtful critique of each student’s arrangement.

Participants are asked to bring their own small or medium-sized vase or vessel for their design.

Ping Wei started his Sogetsu Ikebana study in 2003 under Yukiko Kimoto sensei in Phoenix. His current teacher’s ranking is first grade Somu. He travels to Japan to further his studies at Sogetsu headquarters in Tokyo, and also attends Sogetsu Ikebana master teacher’s workshops in the United States yearly.

SH-84-18 Creative Collage with Sue Hunter

CREATIVE COLLAGE with Sue Hunter

This class will allow students to learn the process of creating a collage, which for this class will start with a simple image, which you will transfer or draw onto a 10x10 wooden canvas that has been painted with two coats of white gesso.   You will then paint the image with acrylic paint.  Next, using paper torn into individual pieces  you'll use matt medium to adhere the paper to the canvas, coating both sides of the paper.  To finish your artwork, you'll define form using light and shadow with colored paper and other items such as stamps and stencils.  This technique is great for using your imagination and being free to create.

Open to all levels.
