Description
In this first program of the series, artist-host T. Mikami introduces the subject of Japanese Brush painting, or Sumie, and explains the use of the brush painting materials: fude (bamboo-handled brush), suzuri (inking stone), and sumi (carbon ink stick). He discusses the Japanese approach to art and draws samples of some of the subjects to be covered in the series.
In this series, artist T. Mikami illustrates the artistry of Japanese Brush Painting. Makami, who claims that everyone is a potential artist, intends to prove this during his 13 classes. Kits were originally made available and viewers could paint along with the outstanding artist. T. Mikami is an outstanding Japanese artist who is the founder and director of the Japanese Art Center in San Francisco. He is well known for art exhibits in the Far East, New York and San Francisco. He taught classes in California and was director of the International Education Center in Tokyo starting in 1953. He had several one-man shows and received the governors prize in Japan in 1950. The 13 half-hour episodes that comprise this series were originally recorded on videotape. (Description adapted from documents in the NET Microfiche)
