Sumi Ink with DSA

Spire Arts visited Dayton Society of Artists to draw on a community collaboration for Art in the City.  

In this DSA sponsored community Drawing Event, the windows at 100 Jefferson St, Dayton, OH will be activated with collaborative Sumi Ink drawings.


* free and open to the public for all ages

* everyone uses the same materials (same-sized brushes, and same color ink, for example)

* don’t dilute the ink, blackest black is best

* everyone works on the same drawing surface

* anyone can add to anyone else’s drawing

* move around the drawing, don’t get stuck in one spot

* everyone agrees when the drawing is finished

Inspired by the Sumi Ink Club
