Recent Friends of Sumi-e Newsletters, plus prior Washu-Kai and Taka Sumi-e Society monthly Newsletters.
Tuesday Painters is a group of FOS members and sumi-e students who meet to paint outdoors, or plein air painting. The informal group meets the 1st, 3rd, 4th and any 5th Tuesdays of each month from 9:00 am until Noon. If you'd like to join in with the Tuesday Painters, contact Gaye Lingley firstname.lastname@example.org. Any suggestions as to places to paint are appreciated. This is a great way to expand artistic horizons and sumi-e really lends itself to the out-of-doors.
