Ink brushes dipped in water create hypnotic, swirling patterns reminiscent of natural phenomena from the grain of wood to the cosmos above. Students will explore using different tools and substances to manipulate the patterns while creating monoprints on Western and Japanese paper. No experience required!

Student Supply List: Apron or old clothes that can get stained. Additional paper for printing is optional (printmaking or Japanese paper is best; additional sheets are available for purchase.

Instructor Bio: Linh My Truong is a Detroit-based interdisciplinary artist and educator working with textiles, video, and electronics. Through her exploration of the Japanese marbling art of suminagashi and penchant for hard geometric forms, her work finds a place between chaos theory and an ordered universe. Her application of technology uses light to create immersive art installations, bringing traditional art forms into the 21st century.
