Live online Zoom class held on April 22, 2020 @ Art Students League of Denver.
Stay Home令の間にやっていることその①：奄美三線の練習、「行きゅんな加那節」の練習をこの4日間くらいちょっと頑張った。 This is one of the accomplishments during the Stay Home order. I have started to practice Amami Sanshin from the basics, and practiced this tune particularly for about four days.
Good to focus on practicing under these unforeseen crisis.
I had fun teaching at the CCA Art department's class! Thank you all ♪
Short notice, but on Wednesday, March 4, 9:30 am - noon, I will have a Japanese calligraphy workshop hosted by Art and Communication Dept, Community College of Aurora at CentreTech.

Happy New Year 2020! 明けましておめでとうございます。
My New Year's resolution; Hito Iki ひと息. This word mainly has two meanings; 1) to create a space/place of no action before acting & 2) do not stop once started moving, and keep the flow (more in calligraphy or act of art)
Japanese Calligraphy and Sumi Ink Drawing workshop, co-taught with my husband Homare Ikeda, four Sundays in October, 2019 at Art Students League of Denver. The last workshop today was a cold and snowy day... Glad we made it. This workshop's theme we made was "Ichi Go Ichi E (一期一会)" which is a Zen Buddhism philosophy and also Japanese Tea Ceremony thought; "Treasure every encounter, for it will never recur." We practiced the word, and ink drawing of preferred images. Thank you for the awesome time to share your great work and passion. Be safe and stay warm..!
