About your host

Hi, I'm Valeria, I rent my house on Airbnb since long time and now I'm really glad to show Airbnb guests what I make. I've been a painter all my life, but since I met Sumi-e, I only paint this style. I've been teaching this beautiful form of art for seven years and people enjoy it very much. You are welcome and I hope you'll like this experience during your stay in Amsterdam!

What we’ll do

Sumi-e is a traditional painting method from Japan which was originally practised by monks in Zen monasteries. It involves the movement of the all body and a deep breathing, this makes it similar to a meditation experience. During the workshop we will learn how to paint a bamboo, which is the main and basic subject in Sumi-e painting. We will also make many exercises for harmonising the strokes…

What else you should know

Wear comfortable and dark clothes to avoid black spots from the ink paint.
