By Miranda YoungSUMIE Club is a relatively new club to Radford’s Co-Curricular Program, yet students involved in this activity are already producing excellent works throughout their Friday afternoon sessions with Michele Sharp, Head of Languages. 

Literally meaning ‘ink picture’, SUMIE is a form of Japanese ink brush painting which uses strokes to create works of art in which different shades and tones are created through the process of watering down the sumi (ink). 

It is believed to have come to Japan from China, and was regularly practised by monks. 

See above and below for examples of student work achieved so far.
