Sumi Ink and Watercolor Workshop With Sheila Sondik


Sumi Ink and Watercolor on Crinkled Mesa

Watercolor and Ink Painting on Crinkled Masa
An Artist’s Two-Day Workshop at Egress Studio

About the Workshop:
This workshop will explore the crinkled masa paper painting technique.

This enjoyable class combines Asian and Western painting techniques, and uses Japanese sumi ink and watercolor on Japanese paper. Each person will learn the techniques for crinkling the masa paper, which will produce intriguing textures, introduce the element of chance, and is very fun, as well. By the end of the workshop, everyone will go home with at least one finished artwork, and the knowledge to make more.
The instructor, Sheila Sondik, has explored this method of working for many years. See beautiful examples of her experience with the medium on her website at
