In each class we read part of “Zen Art for Mediation” before demonstration.  (This book tells us Sumi-E concepts, how you can express this in your own paintings and helps your Sumi-E life.) 

The last 30 minutes we critique each student’s paintings.  (This is the most important part of the class, where you learn from other student’s paintings.)
