    Japanese Ink-Painting (Sumi-e) (East Village)

    (2)
    “If we study Japanese art, we see a man who is undoubtedly wise, philosophic and intelligent, who spends his time doing what? … He studies a single blade of grass.” -Vincent van Gogh Sumi-e, also called Suibokuga, is the art of ink wash-painting. Characteristically, it is an East Asian art, and has been practiced there for well over a thousand years. Sumi-e depicts the spirit or essence of an object or scene rather than its outward appearance — and does so in the fewest possible strokes. Because of this simplicity, the painter’s character and personality come through in his/her work. In both viewing and creating, Sumi-e is a very contemplative form of painting. In this class at RESOBOX, a Japanese cultural center in New York, all students will start from the basics of ink-wash painting, such as how to hold a brush. All materials such as ink, brushes, calligraphy paper, etc. will be provided for the students.

    Harlem Juke Joint Jazz Tour

    Ever want to be that cool cat that knows where all the hidden nightspots are? This tour is your chance. Led by a neighborhood insider that knows everybody and who everybody knows, you'll hit the floor of one Harlem's most legendary venues, Minton's Playhouse. The "birthplace of bebop" was the stomping ground of some of the biggest jazz icons of the mid-20th century. If you're a jazz vocalist or musician, you might even get to jam alongside the world-class performers of the Sugar Hill Jazz Quartet. In addition to partying at Minton's Playhouse, you'll pay homage to some of the great musicians enshrined on the walls of the landmark Apollo Theater. While these two destinations are must-stops, your tour guide might elect to spontaneously divert you to one of the many local dive bars in Harlem if she catches word of an impromptu jam session breaking out that can't be missed. This is a Harlem experience you won't get through any travel book!
