Each year during the fall semester, the VCS program holds a workshop in which painter Max Gimblett teaches the students in Tom Huhn’s senior thesis class the philosophy and techniques of traditional sumi-e ink painting. Today’s post features a few images from the most recent workshop.

If you’d like to know a little more about Max Gimblett, sumi ink painting, its relationship to Zen Buddhism, and its influence on modern art, check out this post from 2009 about the first VCS sumi workshop.
