"Splash Ink with Watercolor" is a blending of Asian black ink and primary watercolors splashed onto layers of Ma (mulberry) or Pi papers, adding finishing touches from both Eastern and Western traditions. Blending black ink and watercolors produces an abstract which can be variously interpreted.  It is about freedom, creativity and your imagination.

This three-day workshop is taught by Ming Franz, an artist who has studied at the National Art Institute of Taiwan with Master Paul Hau, student of world reknowned artist Master Chan Dai-Chein, and with Professor Arthur Kao at San Jose State University.  Ming has her own studio and school in New Mexico and is well known in the watercolor and sumi-e art world for her work and publications on the medium.

The workshop will occur May 2, 3, & 4 from 10 am to 4 pm (with a break for lunch) in the lower level art studio & classroom of the North Building.

Course fee is $275 for Asian Art Association members, $300 for DAM members, $325 for others. A $50 non-refundable deposit is required to hold a place in the workshop.  A $30 materials fee must be paid directly to the teacher by each student.
