I took a beginner and advanced sumi-e course at my university in Japan and it was a real blast. Even though my art major has drawn me toward the digital field and away from traditional, going back and practicing an art that's been around for thousands of years was really rewarding!

An interesting thing I learned is that almost every stroke you make in sumi-e to paint a picture is a stroke used in a chinese character, so practicing one will help the other!
