MISSION

Ming-Chiao

 

Ming Chiao Chapter builds on the mission of the Sumi-e Society of America
to promote the education and enjoyment of traditional and contemporary
 ink-brush art using East- Asian tools and materials.
While appreciating classical approaches, Ming Chiao also encourages experimentation and non-traditional techniques.
