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.

WHAT IS A COMMUNITY DRAWING?

* 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 www.sumiinkclub.com
